The Science of My Life, a blog by CSI Instructor Amy Christopherson
College of Southern Idaho faculty touch the lives of thousands of children in southern and eastern Idaho as they take science activities to K-12 teachers and students.
- What is science? What is a project? How do you design experiments?
- The ‘Black Box’
- Science tools – microscopes, measuring tools, dissection kits, ‘germ detection’, and simple machines
- Chemistry ‘lite’ – solids, gases, atoms, moleculres, compounds
- Animals in spring – owl pellet dissection, food webs, bug collecting
- Science games
Amy Christopherson, a biology instructor heavily involved in CSI outreach, has started a blog about her outreach activities, The Science of My Life.
If you are looking for inspiration for your own science outreach, you will find it at CSI!
