professional development is the best way to go, sometimes you just have to find something to do right away. I recommend that you start at the Science Afterschool Toolkit for an overview of what a program should look like. Once you are ready to pick out some activities, here are some places to look:
- Consumers Guide to Afterschool Science Resources - I've mentioned this before.
- Exploratopia - The Exploratorium* has a new collection of hands-on science activities. (The Coalition's own Thomas Carlson came up with the name - see the credits in the back!)
- Afterschoolmath.org - If you need math activities right away, this site includes video demonstrations and all of the details you will need.
*CSAS is partially funded by a grant through the Exploratorium.
