Offered as a year-long in-class instructional program, Science from Scientists designs and teaches STEM lessons to students in grades 4–8. Our materials are aligned with Massachusetts Department of Education curriculum frameworks. They incorporate lecture segments and hands-on laboratories, as well as additional material beyond the scope of state requirements. Exploratory field trips can also be arranged to a variety of locations including the Museum of Science, New England Aquarium and MIT Museum.
Science from Scientists instructors are available to assist teachers and instruct students in grades 4-12 through the science fair process from start to finish. Students learn about the scientific method, experimental design, data analysis, and creating an attractive, informative and succinct display. We are able to offer schools aid throughout the entire science fair process by: administering a science fair, offering additional guidance as tutors, or serving as judges.
Science from Scientists creates a comprehensive forensic science mystery for students to explore and solve. Students are guided through a fun and informative experience with hands-on activities grounded in a customized storyline. Contact us for additional information and pricing details.
Science from Scientists presents an interactive stage show for audiences of all ages. The show features exciting science demonstrations and accompanying explanations of such experiments such as elephant toothpaste, chemiluminescence, the invisible giant, a bed of nails and explosive rocket cannons. Prior performances in The Hall at Patriot Place have been featured in the Boston Globe, plus the Foxborough Patch and Walpole Patch.
Shows can be of varying lengths (20–60 minutes). Please contact us for more information, availability and pricing.
The Dr. Erika Show
Episodes of “The Dr. Erika Show” make science accessible and entertaining for elementary and middle school students across New England. The show was executive produced by Joshua Seftel, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker who has produced educational programs for NOVA, PBS and WBGH. Its host, Dr. Erika, is a 2004 graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Boston University School of Medicine in 2012. She was also crowned Miss Massachusetts in 2004. Leveraging Dr. Erika’s unique background, the show is designed to teach children about science, break stereotypes and make STEM subjects more approachable and entertaining for children.
