Scientist in Every Florida School (SEFS) is now offering free county-wide, live-streamed visits with a scientist! Counties can choose topics most relevant to coursework being covered in their public schools and the visits can be catered toward a specific grade level. Each visit lasts approximately 30 minutes and will introduce classroom content, followed by a Q&A session. While these visits are designed for a specific county, they are also open to the public should other teachers and students want to join in.
Here are a few examples of our county-wide programs:
Lee County – Plate Tectonics. This program targeted middle and high school students and investigated subsurface events that are driven by plate tectonics and the theory of continental drift.
Lee County – Genetics with the UF Genetics Institute. This program targeted middle and high school students and discussed how genetics are used to study large animals.
Upcoming: Flagler County – Galaxies, Solar Systems, Planets, Earth! This program will target elementary Earth-Space standards. Click the following link to register: Livestream Event: Galaxies, Solar Systems, Planets, Earth!
