WHY
Numerous studies have shown that the ages between birth to eight are the most critical in a child’s development. By encouraging an early interest in science, it helps children to think critically and creatively about the world around them. The Teacher Launch Seminar was inspired on this principle with the goal of providing teachers in Maricopa County additional resources to implement fun science activities into everyday lesson plans in laying the foundation for their children’s success in school and beyond.
