TRASHELLA!!!!!

 

Our programs can be presented to any age group.  It is designed to fit all areas of curriculum, not just science. We can certainly cover several subjects providing time allows. Programs can be customized to fit benchmarks in the classroom.  If the program is to be for a “Teacher’s Workshop” (for about 30 participants) and will be through lunch, we can provide a “waste-free lunch”.

What we will need from you is: amount of time, number of people attending, age of those participating and desired subjects.  We can do school wide, by grade and by class programs.
