Connect with Teachers
We want to help you connect your services with elementary and middle school teachers in the San Francisco East Bay.
CRS works with teachers in every elementary school in the Berkeley, Emeryville, and Oakland school districts. We also work with Individual teacher members in other East Bay elementary and middle schools. We currently have members in more than 140 schools in the East Bay. We can help you connect with these teachers who are committed to bringing hands-on science into their classrooms, keeping teachers up to date about your newest exhibits, upcoming events, and on-going professional development opportunities.
How We Share Information with Teachers
CRS maintains a comprehensive, updated database to track information on science programs in the Bay Area that serve elementary and middle school students and teachers. We provide teachers with timely information via Quarterly Science Resource Guides and Monthly Science e-NewsBlasts. CRS also puts together customized reports for individual teachers who ask us for specific assistance finding information and resources to support science learning. This information also gets compiled into our Grade Level resource reports for teachers and our Upcoming Deadline reports.
We want to work with you to help directly link your science programs with the teachers in our area.
Make sure we have your updated information for teachers
- Sign up for our twice monthly Science Provider Newsletter! We will remind you to send us information to share with teachers, and we will keep you up to date with science education happenings around the Bay
- Please keep us informed about your programs by e-mailing us at CRS@crscience.org, so our teacher members will know about the great programs, events, and services you provide!
- Help us keep our database up to date. Request a database report on all the programs we have listed for your organization (CRS@crscience.org). You can then know if we have everything and you can let us know if we need to edit or add information.
Host a Field Trip for Teachers
We partner with science education providers to host two Field Trips for Teachers each year. Hosting an event at your organization's facility is a great way to highlight the programs and services you provide. We try to make these events easy and fun for everyone involved. The events are generally a couple hours long and allow teachers to get a behind the scenes look at your programs and exhibits. This way they can learn more a what a field trip for their students would be like. We partner to provide programming and light snacks. To see a list of places we have visited in the past you go to our Field Trip for Teachers page. Here is an example of how our Field Trip for Teachers and Science Resource Fair at Chabot Space and Science Center was set up.
