FEAST

Fun Exchanges & Activities for Science Teachers (FEAST)

Have you been looking for new, exciting, teacher-tested ideas for your science classroom? Or perhaps you’ve wanted to have a discussion about science resources, safety in the lab, or how other teachers manage a certain science demonstration or other activity? Or maybe you simply want to network with other science teachers and build a lasting friendship with other science educators. If this is what you’re looking for, we welcome you to FEAST. FEAST is truly a grass roots effort that began with a small group of about eight secondary science teachers in the fall of 2005.

Today our FEAST list has grown in size to over 200, kindergarten through 12th grade, educators. We meet six times during the school year covering topics of interest to the group. Teachers are highly encouraged to bring a five to ten minute activity to share related to the session’s topic or another aspect of science. By sharing one of your favorites, other educators will gain access to yet another engaging activity!

Sessions take place Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. You’ll find our sessions to be very casual yet welcoming to all who wish to share. We hope you will join us at one of our future sessions.

Astronomy and Space Exploration

Join us this month in our exploration of the cosmos! Share your favorite astronomy, solar system, astronaut or other space-related activity with your fellow educators. At this session you’ll also have a chance to experience an abbreviated space flight simulation to Mars in Chabot’s Challenger Learning Center. So, suit up, strap in, and get ready for a cosmic trip into the Universe around us!
