Einstein Academy Kicks Off
DE PERE -- Racing cars, creating volcanoes, and building houses for frogs. It sounds like the perfect science fair.
Except, these science projects were made by teachers. More than 100 educators are gathering at West De Pere Middle School this week for the 21st annual Einstein Academy. The project trains teachers for using hands-on science materials for the upcoming school year.
"I am hopefully helping produce a sciene literate society. So by providing this quality training for the teachers, they are, in turn, giving quality science education to the students," says Professional Development Director Carol Pearson.
The Einstein Academy started today and runs through August 1st.
