“The lesson plans are well written, organized, and easy to follow. Most of all though, I enjoyed teaching them as much as the students enjoyed doing them.”
“The children absolutely THRIVED on the activities we were able to do with the soybean science kit. Everything we needed to do the tasks was included and easily accessible. Thank you very much!”

Teacher Training & Workshops

We understand that introducing a new program into your classroom can be intimidating, especially if you are unfamiliar with the content. We make our science kit easy to use, but we also offer training to those that need the extra help to get started. Our instructor, Fred Henderson, brings 32 years of practical, front-line teaching experience to his role as workshop trainer. He is well versed in many special techniques uniquely suited to stimulating elementary students’ curiosity about science and the environment.

In the workshops, Fred demonstrates the Soybean Science Kit: Polymers, Oil, & Biotechnology by taking teachers through three lessons – emulsions, candles, and lip balm. In addition, he’ll give a quick review of the Soybean Science Kit curriculum guide’s 18 additional lessons.

If you would like to schedule a workshop in your area, please contact us. We are always eager to help integrate our Soybean Science Kit into the classroom.
