Spring Field Trip for Teachers
Fun for teachers!
Field Trip for Teachers & Science Education Resource Fair at Chabot Space & Science Center—Saturday, March 18
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 18. You’ll receive free admission to the science center, delicious breakfast nibbles, 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 their displays, classroom programs, field trip offerings, and more!
