or classroom) how to teach scicence subject at its best. Workshops
are 2 hours long and will spend about half hour on content and then an

extend the learning.
After 40 years of working with students and teachers, you are guareented

oceans to bones. Open your eyes to the many fossils
locations around the bay area that can excite the many children
that always wanted to be a paleontologist. See the many
hands on activities from the giant sharks of Morocco to the Ice
Age Mammoths of Fremont that you can bring into your classroom.
Electricty, Magnetism and Light
(Code T-CNHM02) Physics can
taught throughout the grades at just that special moment.
This workshop will go through basic principles of

nature. Lots of inexpensive experiments that you can make
with your students.
