One component of the Science and Everyday Experiences
(SEE) Initiative is to provide leadership and professional development
activities to both prepare and mobilize the members of the 900+
Delta Chapters to serve as life-long informal science education
organizers for family and community science events or as parent
Training workshops are
open to Chapter members throughout the seven Delta regions.
Participants in SEE training will have the opportunity to
do hands-on, minds-on and inquiry-based science, mathematics, health,
and literacy activities that can be replicated with children and
families in their own communities across the country.
In addition to hands-on science activities, SEE
training workshops include discussions of the following topics:
Science in Everyday Life
What Is Informal Science Education?
What Is Inquiry?
How Informal Science Supports the
Science and Mathematics Standards
The Internet and Informal Science Education
Health Literacy Resources
Science Books and Science Media
Tips for Organizing Community Science Events
Tips for Leading Community Science Workshops
Evaluating Community Science Events and Workshops
