I thought some of you might be interested in the following face-to-face training opportunity. Please note that if you go, the science curriculum you learn and receive includes 12 lessons that must be presented to middle school kids in a specific order and having access to outside space is required to present some of the lessons. Questions? Contact Rachel Kessler rachel.kessler at oregonask.org<mailto:rachel.kessler at oregonask.org>  —Katie

Afterschool Colleagues-

OregonASK is partnering with California Academy of Sciences to implement a pilot project for middle school afterschool programs.  Do you have any middle school programs that need some free science curriculum and supplies, and free staff training?

Here is the information for the Science Action Club: Bugs in Your Schoolyard.

We have a training scheduled in Eugene on September 30th and in Wilsonville on October 12th, both from 8am to noon.

Details for implementing the club are below:

Lessons: There are 12, one-hour lessons that must be offered in sequence. The "Bugs" curriculum must be implemented this fall. These lessons could be offfered every day for 12 days, once a week for 12 weeks, twice a week for 6 weeks, or whatever other scenario works for your program (as long as the unit is completed this fall).

Attendance: 15-20 students with consistent attendance

Technology: At least one device that can access the internet (for using iNaturalist, and for reporting to the California Academy of Sciences)

Space: Access to the outdoors is required!

Supplies: Clubs will receive a kit of supplies (with enough for 15-20 students) to implement the lessons

Please contact me as soon as possible if you would like to participate in this pilot! Training is right around the corner!
