The Sacred in Science
Description of Workshop:
Science is a core subject in the learning journey of the child. But science is also a way of knowing and therefore sacred. This is a workshop that takes common experiences to show how everything is already connected. Together, through hands on demonstrations we will seek to honor the interesting ways you already are a great teacher and an observant student of life. If you get inspired by the beauty of science, even momentarily, you are already celebrating the sacred.
