Need Ideas for Classroom Sessions?

ReSET volunteer John Emler recently attended a science teaching session at the Greenbelt, MD Community Center.  Additional sessions are scheduled:
June 22nd & 23rd: Chemistry: Introduce the basic concepts of chemistry and show how chemical reactions can be controlled.
July 27th & 28th: Fluids: Introduce the concepts of viscosity, lift, drag and entrainment.

John reports that the program:
  1.  Is sponsored and paid for by the City of Greenbelt
  2.  Covers one topic each month, repeated at two different facilities in Greenbelt, , 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
  3.  Children 8 to 16 are welcome – free.  Parents usually stay – also free.
  4.  Teacher is a Physics graduate student at MD U. – He has access to equipment similar to what would be in a high school physics class.
  5.  Teacher is paid – amount not determined and does a very good job.
  6. Class room is large and suited for 15 + students.  However, only two students came.
  7. They are advertising the program in the City of Greenbelt newsletter of planning. 

      Good program that needs a lot more students
