NDSU Hosting Science Boot Camp for Educators

Science teacher, author, toy designer and Emmy award-winning TV personality Steve Spangler is leading the camp.

Science teacher, author, toy designer and Emmy award-winning TV personality Steve Spangler is leading a hands-on science boot camp in Fargo on Aug. 14 for teachers, Extension Service staff and other educators.

The program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Great Plains Room at the North Dakota State University Memorial Union. The NDSU Center for 4-H Youth Development is hosting the event.

Spangler’s passion is to find the most creative ways to make learning fun. He turns ordinary science experiments into unforgettable learning experiences. His now-famous Mentos Geyser Experiment became an Internet sensation in 2005 and spawned more than 1,000 related exploding-soda videos.

The registration fee for the boot camp is $65, which includes a $40 take-home kit filled with science materials and an activity guide. The registration deadline is July 22.

Participants can receive 1 600-level professional development credit from NDSU Distance and Continuing Education (the cost is an additional $60 to be paid the day of the event) or 1.5 continuing education credits (the cost is an additional $10 to be paid the day of the event).
