One of my favorite places to find virtual connections for our students and teachers is with Skype a Scientist.
As they state on their site,
Skype a Scientist s a group of 5000+ scientists who are available to video chat into your classroom and have an open discussions with your class. The goal of the program s for students to have positive experiences with scientists and form a personal connection with someone working in a scientific field.
You can read how it works here.
Every month, they have been putting together the Skype a Scientist LIVE calendar which is filled with special events our students and families can be part of.
On this page, you will find the Skype a Scientist LIVE calendar for June. When you get to this page, scroll down to find all of the events with a description and link to each session.
Take a look at a few for June....
And one of the best parts! They have an awesome Skype A Scientist YouTube Channel where you can find...
...so many wonderful connections with scientists of all kinds.
They are also offering their services for families. You will find that information here.
Over the last few years, our students and teachers have loved the connections we have made and information we have learned through our connections with scientists. Thank you Skype a Scientist for bringing us such engaging and educational connections with scientists. We can't wait for even more!
