Worked at COSI, interactive science museum in Columbus, OH, as an outreach educator incorporating hands-on science into learning by running and designing programs. Basically I would blow stuff up and kids would go crazy.
Getting students involved as much as possible.

BA Middle Childhood Science and Social Studies
I've learned so many hands-on experiments and activities over the years that I wanted to break them down and reformat them into practical classroom use. It was always funny observing students when they would be doing one of the programs and how much excitement and enthusiasm they had knowing that they probably didn't act this way every time the were learning. I definitely used to be the student that "hated school," but always jumped on any opportunity to get involved in an activity or classroom discussion, and I think plenty of students are like me.
