A chemistry workshop for teachers at the 2014 Cambridge Science Festival

Updated on 5/1/20142014 Cambridge Science Festival  part of the programs for educators  I pitched this idea of a teachers-only event at the 2014 Cambridge Science Festival to the festival organizers and they loved it so much, they added several educator-only events to the slate!

We were the first up on festival opening night!


Teacher Workshop led by 

Dr. Al Hazari


Dr. Al Hazari,  wowed participants  with his chemistry-based magic show and inspired them to bring these ideas, strategies and kitchen-chemistry experiments  to their students in their own teaching environment. 

Friday evening April 18, 2014 at The Broad Institute in Cambridge was an educational experience exclusive to teachers.

5pm: Networking reception with hors d'oeuvres prepared by Baker's Best Catering.
