Science teacher, author, toy designer and Emmy Award-winning television personality Steve Spangler is scheduled to lead a hands-on science boot camp in Fargo on Aug. 14 for teachers, Extension Service staff and other educators.
The program is set for 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the NDSU Memorial Union Great Plains room. The NDSU Center for 4-H Youth Development is hosting the event.
Spangler turns ordinary science experiments into unforgettable learning experiences. His 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 one 600-level professional development credit from NDSU Distance and Continuing Education, with a cost of an additional $60 to be paid the day of the event, or 1.5 continuing education credits, with a cost of an additional $10 to be paid at the camp.
