Claire is an amazing scientist and teacher! When I speak to her, I feel my ideas are valued and important.” female SciTech Explorer, age 9
Our highly trained instructors are scientists, science educators, medical students, engineers, innovators, and college graduates with degrees in various fields of science and technology. They are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about deepening their students’ understanding of science.
SciTech Kids instructors encourage students to “think outside of the box” and see their role as facilitators rather than just transmitters of knowledge. Our team enjoys expanding their own curiosity as the kids inspire them to see the world differently through the questions they ask.
Most importantly, SciTech instructors also challenge the stereotypical perception of what scientists are—grey-haired, white males with wild hair and thick glasses. Students get to see a scientist at work. And while 72 percent of Americans can’t name a living scientists, our kids can!
