Demo Days is the hallmark event in the CFS virtual learning series. This innovative professional development is geared toward all secondary science educators. Knowing that students need to explore through hands-on phenomena, investigations, and experiments, Demo Days focuses solely on providing sessions centered around demos, labs, and engineering activities. Presenters will not just deliver the final product but will share set-up, safety, material management, student misconceptions, modifications, and special instructions as needed. Attendees will leave with an enormous bank of new hands-on explorations, as well as a workbook full of labs that you can photocopy/download and use with your class immediately!
We know that this past year you've been amazing and strong alone.
This year, let's be unstoppable together in science.
Jason Latimer is the creator of “Impossible Science” the academic platform uniting magic and science to inspire wonder in education, which has now become a popular YouTube channel with millions of views. Latimer is the Curator of Impossible Science of the iconic Fleet Science Center in San Diego, CA but his STEM program has expanded to science centers throughout Southern California. Recently, Engineering.com and Latimer launched the Impossible Science Student Challenge, a competition of thousands of participating schools across the US and Canada to find the classroom doing the most to inspire curiosity within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
As a magician, Jason is the series champion of the BBC One’s The Magicians, the recipient of Siegfried & Roy’s Masters of the Impossible Award, and was bestowed with magic’s highest honor, “Grand Prix ‘Best Overall’ World Champion of Magic.”
