Review for A Schmahl Science Workshop, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a teacher at an elementary school in San Jose. We have worked with Schmahl Science to provide after school science classes to all interested 3rd through 6th graders, and GATE classes at our school. These classes are so popular that they fill up in days. Students are always asking me when the next class will be. Their teachers are highly educated in their field. They are always enthusiastic about what they teach. This enthusiasm is infectious. They present the lessons in such a way that all students understand and participate. Schmahl Science classes have always been an asset. Now, with so many districts cutting back on time that teachers can teach science in elementary, it's a necessity. I can't imagine a school year without Schmahl Science. I find I'm learning as much as my students.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their enthusiasm, knowledge, ability to work with several levels of students at the same time, and their wide variety of choices in science topics. EVERYTHING!
