Session S10 (Sunday, 2pm, Thomas 117)

P62: Sustained outreach: What if the scientist stays with the teachers and their students?

Julie Henderleiter (Grand Valley State University, USA)

Oftentimes outreach at the K-8 level involves bringing materials to the school for single-day events or having students attend summer camps of various durations. These activities are memorable and do help students learn and become excited about science. But what happens after the event is over? What happens if a scientist instead provides long-term support for teachers? This talk will describe ways in which an individual can alter or improve the inclusion of science into early elementary classrooms through long-term, sustained interactions with students and their teachers. Classroom materials will be shared, along with strategies that support practicing teachers.
