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

Rating: 5 stars  

My 6-year old daughter and 4-year old son attended the summer science workshop in June 2009. Every morning they got up excited to go to the science class. Why? In their words they "got to try new things". The kids learned about the characteristics/attributes that define and differentiate animals (e.g., omnivore, carnivore, herbivore). The learning took place within the context of stories, pictures, hands-on projects, and studying the animals that they instructors brought. I wish that Schmahl Science was available in every school so that I could have the confidence that my daughter and son were gaining the skills that would help them build upon their natural curiosity and orientation for hands-on exploration.

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

the instructors commitment and enthusiasm to empower the children through hands-on exploration and discovery

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to the children

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open its own school founded on its mission

Ways to make it better...

the summer camp was offered 1 week every month during the summer

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of public's awareness about its curriculum, results, and instructors' credentials

One thing I'd also say is that...

spread the word about Schmahl Science
