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

Rating: 4 stars  

A Schmahl Science provides wonderful hands-on science experiments for my students, which enhances the curriculum. The presenters come prepared and are very knowledgeable about what they are teaching. My students especially love the Owl workshop where they get to dissect owl pellets. It is 4 stars instead of 5 because of some accounting/billing problems.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my classroom. The kids really learn the science information because they are learning in a fun, hands-on way. It is difficult for me to plan hands-on science when I have to spend a lot of my time planning for the state testing (LA and Math).

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just the accounting.

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

the enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenters, and the wonderful materials that they provide.

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

excellent

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

really bring a lot of wonderful science experiences to children.

Ways to make it better...

the accounting/ billing department was organized differently. I've had problems with being billed for workshops that my class/grade level team didn't do.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & My class participated in two hour long workshops.
