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: Anything OCEAN!
The oceans cover approximately 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contain 97 percent of Earth’s water!
- What animals make the ocean their home?
- How does the ocean support a variety of ecosystems and organisms?
- Does the ocean influence our climate?
Cynthia Cudaback (fellow FEASTER) has volunteered to anchor this session and share activities she has created.!
We highly encourage you to bring a five to ten-minute activity to share related to the session’s topic or another aspect of science. In addition, if you can share any connections your activity has to NGSS your colleagues would greatly appreciate it! Do you have a write up of your lesson? Please bring it on a flash drive or hardcopies to share.
Because of a conflicting event scheduled at Chabot, our session originally scheduled for October 15th has been cancelled. So, this means you also get to bring your Halloween Trick or Treats activities to this session!
Please RSVP by September 28th 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
