Explainers in Egypt

by Anne

This weekend, Aiona and I went to a new museum in Qanater, Egypt to lead Explainer training.  This is the first time that they’ve used hands-on exhibits, and they’re expecting it to be the first time for their visiting school groups as well.  They are are extremely excited about this new museum and are looking forward to bringing some fun and excitement into science learning.  Here’s a peek at what we did:

Explainers discussing strategies for helping students make careful observations at Turbulent Orb

Explainers racing various balls down gravity well and explaining their questions and discoveries to each other
