SEED models lessons with students while up to a dozen teachers observe. All materials needed to lead an engaging, hands-on and student-driven activity with a classroom of your students are provided. Teachers have the opportunity to observe current science pedagogy and then discuss the activity with the SEED educators immediately after and at a later follow-up date. All tools needed to bring the activity to the classroom, including kits of supplies, lesson plans and presentation slides, are left with teachers for future use. SEED educators are available for sustained consultations or individual coaching as needed.
COVID-19 forced many schools to offer remote learning and SEED was able to provide schools with hands-on activities that teachers could do with their students synchronously or asynchronously. Using a video made by SEED and a kit of materials that provided the student with every item needed for active experimentation, students actively learned engaging, grade-appropriate science concepts right from their own homes.
SEED works with schools to provide extended in-class residencies covering traditionally difficult topics such as energy or waves. Using hands-on activities SEED brings fun to the classroom while delivering high-quality science education. SEED often partners with the MA Cultural Council and their STARS Residency Programs to fund these extended learning opportunities.
SEED wants to share our love of science with students of all ages and is available for private programming events at libraries, community centers, and STEM events. Contact us for details.
