TEACHING EXPERIENCE

How About Science? is managed and created by me, David Howe. I've been teaching science to kids, K through college, for over three decades. In the 1990's I was known as "Commander Dave" on a televised science program designed for elementary and middle school students called "Young Astronauts." I have taught science courses in the public schools for over thirty years, have developed over a dozen different science and engineering summer camp programs for elementary kids, and was the elementary and secondary science methods instructor at Gonzaga University for several years. For more information about me and some of the science resources I have created, please go to http://www.howaboutscience.com/about.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Science is about asking questions, collecting evidence and drawing conclusions. So, the activities I use all revolve around that idea. Learning about scientific topics is so much more engaging when they are framed as part of an investigation. The 5 E's, engage, explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate are infused into every lesson I teach.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In 1991, I was chosen to be the on-air instructor for a series of televised science programs, which were broadcast to students across the country. I spoke to my students live on-air via telephone and was able to visit them on many occasions. Some were located in remote areas of Alaska and I arrived there via a combination of bush plane and dogsled. I worked extensively with scientists and engineers from NASA to put together programs that highlighted the latest missions. In addition, I traveled to locations around the world doing workshops and presentations. It was an amazing job! The picture in my store shows my son and I in our flight suits, ready for another mission!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BS in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology from the University of Missouri, a BS in Biology from Washington State University and an MA in Science Education from Pacific Lutheran University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After teaching science on so many different levels and for so many years, I would love to be able to continue contributing by providing support for parents and teachers in any way I can. Teaching science is a challenging, but rewarding endeavor. It helps immeasurably if you have great resources at your disposal. The howaboutscience website, as well as the activities I offer on TPT, are my way of making it all a bit easier. ‚Äč
