Fun Exchanges & Activities for Science Teachers

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 8 secondary science teachers in the fall of 2005.

Today our FEAST list has grown in size to over 200 teachers. We meet once a month during the school year and topics are selected by the FEAST teachers. Most of our sessions invite teachers to share lessons and demonstrations around a particular topic such as "Energy" or "Toys in Science" or "Climate Science," etc. However, we also have visiting speakers who might present a half day workshop. All of these experiences are conducted on Saturday mornings. There is no cost to join or participate as long as you are an educator. However, we do want to emphasize that the reason the FEAST sessions have become so successful is because of the sharing that goes on. By sharing one of your favorite lessons around a particular topic, other educators can gain access to yet another idea. 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.


FEAST would like to welcome all teachers to attend our next sessions:

  • Saturday, September 27 (9am - 12pm)
    Free for Educators (must register in advance)
    Have you been looking for new, exciting, teacher-tested ideas for your science classroom? Perhaps you’ve wanted to connect with others on science resources, safety in the lab or how other teachers manage certain science demonstrations and activities? Or maybe you simply want to network with and build relationships with other local science educators.
  • Saturday, October 25 (9am - 12pm)
    Special Events & Holiday Tricks (or Treats)
    Free for Educators
    (must register in advance)
    What are some of the cool demos or activities that you reserve for those upcoming special holidays, events, or celebrations like Halloween, Earth Day, National Science and Engineering Day, or π Day. At this session, we’d like you share an activity that is linked to such an occasion. Bring your ideas, demonstrations and/or lessons and share how you connect students with science and math and collect a few ideas for yourself while you’re at it. This topic embraces all disciplines: biology/physiology, chemistry, physics, earth science, math and more.

Please RSVP using the form below so we can get an idea how many of you will be attending. If you have any questions, contact us at: Feast@ChabotSpace.org
