SEEDS FOR SCIENCE
Seeds for Science offers interactive science based workshops which integrate learning through movement/dance in addition to Action Based Learning. Highly interactive, movement/dance activities help students retain scientific concepts. Workshops also develop critical thinking, problem solving, and team building skills. Seeds for Science facilitates learning through implementing a kinesthetic teaching approach.
Kinesthetic learning takes place when students carry out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations. Each workshop is aligned with the state of North Carolina curriculum standards.
Seeds for Science can help you reach your content-specific/program goals and learning objectives, all through getting youth up and MOVING!
Research suggests that 85% of all students are kinesthetic learners!
