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.

Topic:  Technology - Lights, iPad, Action!

Eric Havel, Chabot’s Senior Manager of Education will share the Claymation and Climate Change Program, a weeklong stop motion video program that Chabot has developed. The program involves students working in teams with iPad stop motion application software to create video animations that explain what climate change is, what causes it, and possible solutions to this emerging global environmental program. The videos are referred to as "Claymation” videos, as students use clay as the medium to create their animation videos. During this session, you will have the opportunity to create your own short Claymation video!

Share your best technology activities and resources you’ve used in your classroom!  We highly encourage you to bring a five to ten-minute activity to share
.  There is access to the internet in our lab!    Do you have a write-up of your lesson?  Please bring your write-up on a flash drive or hardcopy to share.  Your colleagues would greatly appreciate it!
