In addition to distributing projects at local schools and public spaces, we will also be delivering Bags Full of Science a la ice cream truck style. We have rehabilitated a small City of Greenfield electric vehicle and transformed it into a Space Shuttle on wheels: the Science Buggy! In it, we rove the Greenfield streets playing loud science-themed music, drawing kids out of their houses and apartments and delivering Bags Full of Science directly to them. Every week, the Science Buggy covers every City street. This is our way of making sure every child in Greenfield has access to genuine science learning experiences.
Read all about our Bags Full of Science Program - a distance learning program we launched at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic - in this Monterey County Weekly article by Celia Jiménez! As of 12/19/2000, we have distributed more than 40,000 science kits to youth in Greenfield and South Monterey County.
In an interview with the Greenfield News, Curt Gabrielson describes the ins and outs of our new distance learning program--Bags Full of Science!
Our distance learning program, Bags Full of Science, featured in a short KION piece.
Curt Gabrielson took part in a national panel hosted by MAKE-- a magazine for Do-It-Yourselfers (DIY people)-- to discuss the challenges and possibilities of informal education during pandemic time.
