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

Rating: 5 stars  

Schmahl Science Workshop is a very special, almost magic, way to learn about science. They have designed very simple experiments that children and adults of all levels can participate in. One of the ways it is special is they do not talk down to the kids or change the experiment so it is too simple for the age group. This instills confidence in all the students and allows them to think independently and see possiabilities It is a safe enviroment to learn and question. The kids are free to interact and comment and learn at thier own pace. This is a wonderful way of presenting science to kids and thier parents and making it come alive. Since it is in a interactive enviroment the lessons are remembered and it is a great introduction to the scientific process to all ages.
