This past school year, a total of 184 requests were received for classroom visits by volunteer scientists and engineers. One hundred forty one of these were completed and 7,989 students were served through this program. Eight teacher workshops including 30 schools and 413 teachers were conducted. During the summer, lesson plans have been written for each of the kits which included background information as well as at least one lesson on each level. Teachers and volunteers continue to check out the kits. Last year 541 check outs were made from the list of kits.
Requests for classroom visits and kits are being made in large numbers! Please remember to call early to reserve kits. New kits are being cataloged for checkout.
