The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center is now providing free training in science education to all of the San Diego Unified teachers who take their kids to school district programs in Balboa Park. We earlier highlighted some of the training that the center provides on teaching science; now it will reach every fifth grade teacher in the school district. Pretty nifty, eh? The program started in January.
The goal is to help teachers give more engaging, individualized science lessons. There are no added costs for Fleet or for San Diego Unified. Teachers will meet in the afternoons at Fleet on the same days that their students are learning about diversity through the educational programs in Balboa Park.
