A Schmahl Science Workshop
August 14, 2008
As a principal in Berryessa School District, I have had the pleasure of working with Belinda Schmahl for many years. She and her assistants have provided hands on science workshops at two of the schools where I served as principal.
Students love the experience! Not only do they learn a great deal from the workshops, but they become excited about science. They want to learn more and teachers give them the opportunity to read and write about the science subject.
One particular lesson that I've observed had students dissecting owl pellets. They learned a great deal about owls, the food chain, and the remains of the creatures they found in the owl pellet. It was a joy to watch them learning by discovery.
Teachers in my schools don't always have the time, knowledge or materials to create the lessons that the Schmahl Science Workshops present and they love that we have had these scheduled for their students.
I would highly recommend them to any elementary school.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
helping students learn about science in a interactive way.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
seeing students get excited about science.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
well qualified. They knew their subject mater and were able to keep the students engaged in the lesson/activity.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide affordable science workshops to all schools.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
