Field Trip for Teachers & Science Resource Fair

CRS and Chabot Space and Science Center are hosting teachers on Saturday, March 21 from 9 am - 1:00 pm

Free! Prizes! Fun for teachers!

Question: Wouldn’t it be great if there was a “farmers market” style event where teachers could talk with people from a wide range of science education programs, for FREE, while noshing and networking with fellow teachers, all at an amazing science playground? Plus, prizes?!

Answer: We think so! And that’s why CRS has teamed up with Chabot Space and Science Center to present our Spring Field Trip for Teacher event! Come join us on Saturday March 21. You’ll receive free admission to the science center, delicious nibbles (breakfast time and mid day!), and have the opportunity to peruse offerings from about two dozen science providers. Discover great science resources – from field trips, to in-class programs, to lesson plans, to professional development and more – all under one roof. Chabot will provide behind the scene access to some of their displays, classroom programs, field trip offerings, and more!

RSVP before March 14 at https://ftftchabotspace.eventbrite.com

Talk with representatives from the California Academy of Sciences, Marine Science Institute, NatureBridge, Astronomy Society of the Pacific and at least 10 more….

Pick up your “passport to science” as you walk in the door and collect stamps as you wander through our science education resource fair, visit the exhibits and science labs at Chabot, and touch base with the staff of Community Resources for Science. Turn in your filled in passport as your raffle ticket to be eligible for prizes big and small, including a free field trip for you class to Chabot Space & Science Center!
