Hi, I’m Scott. I started my career as an Electrical Engineer. I quickly moved into a sales environment where I supported engineering software. I then sold engineering technology for another 20 years. Today I teach in a small charter school in the city of Philadelphia, we graduate about 110 students a year.
I started this blog to help me keep track of the things I want to do in my classroom and it kind of got away from me. I still use most of the lessons and activities you see here, so I know they work. Feel free to email me with questions, I’m happy to help.
As always, I’ll be adding activities, ideas and insights as I come up with them. I also update old posts with new information as I redo the activities. Many of these activities are good for summer camp and just experimenting at home, so dig in.
Please add your comments and feel free to contact me. I’m here all the time since, like you, I’m always working on lesson plans, labs, and other activities to engage my students. I am never too proud to borrow a good idea that works, so please share.
