As a teacher I always felt like when people learn things with pleasure, they retain them for a lifetime. So as a teacher I wanted to provide, hands-on, fun, meaningful learning experiences and along the way I discovered that Keystone Science School has those same values. So for over 15 years I would bring my kids to Keystone Science School. At that time I was teaching 5th grade and it was just a wonderful experience having my students be outside learning about the environment and developing themselves and understanding that their personal choices really matter in this world.
