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. 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.
There is an annual fee for participating in FEAST sessions. The fee will help off-set the costs of using the Chabot facility as a meeting space and the Chabot staff facilitating the session.
Benefits of participation in FEAST include:
- A minimum of six FEAST sesions throughout 2015
- A meeting space for three hours
- Chabot staff facilitator at each session
- Access to the Chabot facility during and after the FEAST session
- Networking opportunities with others who are passionate about science
- Access to teacher-tested shared lessons
$50.00 annual fee (good for one year from date of purchase) or
$10.00 fee per FEAST session. Please check in at the front desk.
