Activities to Ignite Children’s Passion for Technical Arts and Sciences
The Science Zone in Casper, Wyoming, is offering a new “Learn with the Doc” virtual learning series—engaging science videos and a virtual version of its afterschool program for middle school and high school students. The series features video lessons with a microbiologist at 11 a.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, on the “Learn with the Doc” Facebook event page. Participants can comment and interact with the scientist. The lessons are based on educational science standards, as well as reading and writing standards. The Science Zone also posts fun “Daily Dose of Science” videos on its Facebook page and YouTube channel, and the museum is working on creating virtual field trips that meet standards and are based around what teachers need for their students.
