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

Rating: 5 stars  

Schmahl Science brings a can-do attitude, access to expert help and tools, and definite encouragement to use their own talents to students. The results for their efforts are amazing--students routinely complete work multiple grade levels above where they would be expected to, because they are not discouraged. Schmahl Science workshops use good classroom management techniques to avoid conflicts, and I never saw student conflicts in their classes. If you want to see their impact, the number of students who win at science fair with their help is astounding--and this sort of experience is excellent in teaching students how to conceive, execute and push to completeness and then communicate a project.

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

working with the teachers and students and seeing the excitement of the students.

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

enthusiastic and knowledgable.

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

Expand to cover all the schools in the area by developing their teacher training program. It would revolutionize science education in the greater Bay Area.
