Today your child began an exciting science program in their classroom offered by Science from Scientists. SfS is a Boston-based, non-profit organization that strives to improve science and technology attitudes and aptitudes. We send real scientists into the classroom during school every other week to teach exciting, fun, and curriculum-relevant science lessons. We will be visiting your child’s classroom every other week throughout the school year. We will bring engaging, informative, and stimulating hands-on lessons with us to supplement the school’s science curriculum.
Meet Amanda: Amanda earned her M.S. in Environmental Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2012. Her research focused on benthic aquatic insect taxonomy, stream health bioassessments, and sedimentation issues in aquatic ecosystems. Amanda’s research has taken her to Costa Rica, Sicily, and beyond.
Meet Joey: Joey grew up in Salem, MA and has always been interested in studying animals and plants. He graduated from Salem State University with a B.S. in Environmental Biology with a minor in Chemistry in 2010. At Salem State, he studied abroad in a national park in Honduras and decided to pursue a M.S. in rainforest ecology and wildlife conservation at James Cook University in Australia.
