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.

"Strengthening the engineering aspects of the Next Generation Science Standards will clarify for students the relevance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (the four STEM fields) to everyday life.”  National Science Teacher Association."

Chances are, you engaged your students in some awesome hands-on/inquiry engineering activities this year while teaching a math or science concept. Now’s the time to share and showcase your best!

Bring a five to ten-minute engineering demo or activity to share with the group. 
Do you have a write-up of your lesson?  Please bring your write-up on a flash drive or hard copy to share.  Your colleagues would greatly appreciate it!
