Each week Headwaters will introduce you to a professional scientist who will tell us all about what they do in the sciences and answer questions from the audience. This is a great way to still give kids exposure to science-related careers while learning remotely.
For teachers: Below each talk is a downloadable homework assignment. Each talk and homework assignment gives students practice with many NGSS skills. See the full description on NGSS alignment at the bottom of the page.
On Wednesday’s Headwaters staff will have hours dedicated to helping students and teachers with science lessons during this time of remote learning. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meeting time.
Every Thursday at 9 a.m. PST, we’ll share a weekly challenge activity you can do to play along with us. Use #HSIweeklychallenge to share your findings with us on social media.
Every Friday at 9 a.m. PST, we’ll share activities that keep you moving through the outdoors around your house. Use #HSIobservers to share your findings with us on social media.
