You get to prepare the next generation of our society
DON’T let the status quo of separating lab from lecture hold you back.
As secondary science teachers, we can and should be teaching science as a thing we do instead of as a collection of facts.
Focus on providing experiences instead of information, and you’ll increase both student engagement and achievement.
No more “Did they get it? Do they even care?” days!
TURN YOUR STUDENTS INTO SCIENCE SLEUTHS AS SOON AS TOMORROW!
THE ACTIVE LEARNING ACTION PLAN
It’s time to use technology that’s already out there on the internet – FOR FREE – to plan experiences that strengthen science skills so your students can better learn those science facts.
Show up each day excited to empower your students with the tools they need to become lifelong learners.
I’ll teach you how to:
Ditch the script you’ve been following for years.
Stop making excuses about why it won’t work for you.
Spend more time working with your students than against them.
Know what every student needs and when they need it.
Do it all … everyday … effortlessly.

You dream of taking time off for yourself without the guilt of leaving students in a lurch.
You like professional development that shows you exactly how to accomplish all the things, not just what you should you or why you should do it.
