Trying to put into words our Science at Sea experience is like trying to capture the true size and beauty of Glacier Bay with my phone. It’s not that easy. The excursions and lectures were all incredibly thoughtful, entertaining, and memorable. But it was the magical trio of Steve Spangler, Carly and Higgins along with the Science at Sea group members that elevated the entire experience for us. In the week we spent together, we learned a ton, laughed even more, and made countless memories that will be forever treasured. Science at Sea was everything we hoped it would be and so much more! It was truly THE BEST WEEK EVER!

Jodi & Ava Mei McMahon – Peachtree Corners, GA

My favorite conference of all time! Even though I am not a science educator, I got a lot out of this conference. I loved the hands-on parts and came away feeling energized and excited to work with students in the fall.

Patty Woody – Yukon-Koyukuk School District, Fairbanks, AK

You and your amazing team have created an incredible, three-day experience that inspired our staff with so many unforgettable memories. The gifts of awe and wonder that you gave each human being will be treasured for a lifetime. You helped to make me a better teacher for so many children.

EVENT OVERVIEW & EXPERIENCE

The Science in the Rockies experience is unlike any professional development training you’ve ever attended. This innovative workshop focuses on best practices for student engagement strategies as the learner uses inquiry-based science to explore popular STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) challenges. 

This is not a “sit-and-watch” teacher training… this is a “get-up-and-do” learning experience featuring over 75 engaging activities that you can take home and immediately share with your students. You’ll learn the science behind the fun while practicing how to present the science activities in your classroom. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to use Steve Spangler’s unique strategies for turning ordinary activities into practical experiences that teach solid STEM.

STEM… STEAM… STREAM… STEMM… STEMSS… Yes, we’ve heard them all and it’s exhausting. It’s really all about inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers… and no one does it better than Steve Spangler. The difference between good teachers and great teachers isn’t WHAT they know… it’s HOW they present it to really connect with students. It’s all about the person… the teacher… and the way the material is presented. That’s why we’re going to give you a crash course in using presentation skills and showmanship to fascinate and captivate your students as you work to strengthen critical thinking skills and the desire to want to learn more.


INCREDIBLE TAKE-HOME MATERIALS

You’ll leave the conference with all the tools you need to become the best STEM teacher possible, including over $500 of gizmos, gadgets, hands-on learning materials for your students, hard-to-find supplies, and cool resources that accompany the Science in the Rockies curriculum.

In just three days, you will learn how to use exploration and inquiry to create unforgettable learning experiences for your students. Join us in Colorado for this inspiring science workshop and take your teaching to a whole new level!


THREE AMAZING STEM-FILLED DAYS

Day 1 – Connect. Engage. Experience.

The Art and Science of Creating Amazing STEM Experiences

Steve Spangler will kick-off your three-day experience with a high-energy morning session that will have you laughing, learning and thinking about the impact and influence you have on students. Steve will take you beyond the “what” and “how” as you explore the “why” behind the STEM, STEAM, STREAM movements that are all jockeying for our attention in school systems around the world.

Next, you’ll roll up your sleeves and dig into some hands-on fun that will reinforce the teaching strategies and presentation methods Steve uses to get students to think like a scientist. The afternoon is packed with eye-catching demonstrations and hands-on activities that encourage students to “play with a purpose.” Learn how to help children pursue the “why-factor” and begin to wonder, discover, and explore. By the end of the day, your head will be spinning with ideas!

TEACHERS ARE TALKING…

I attended the Science in the Rockies in 2017.  The best message I received from the Science in the Rockies was the energy and passion Steve and his team have to make science come to life in every classroom! Doug Hodous was that science teacher who changed the way Steve thought about science, now it’s our turn to be that science teacher to our students the way Doug was to Steve. Thank you again Spangler team for creating an experience that I can share with my students for many years to come.

David M.

Science In The Rockies was the best science/STEM conference I have personally ever attended. You get to teach us these awesome experiments in the purest platform! What I mean by that is – this conference was literally teaching in its purest form, all about experiences with no strings attached. As I wrapped up my 1st year of teaching, this really refreshed my love for science and I cant wait to create brand new science experiences with future students. I seriously wish every teacher that has a passion for making learning fun could attend this conference, it was truly amazing. Thank you Steve, and your awesome staff for the phenomenal experiences you created for me and everyone else. Hope to see y’all in the future!

Valerie A.

If you ever attend a workshop or conference again – you need to Make this one top priority. You will not be disappointed! You will walk away with more ideas and quality supplies than you ever will from any other conference. You will also never laugh so hard or be treat better.  Steven Spangler and his staff are very knowledgeable and very caring.  I will be attending again and possibly attend other workshops they have panned.  Not to repeat myself but you will not be disappointed!

Cheryl R.

Wow! What an incredible experience! After 23 years of teaching this is hands down the best professional development conference I have ever been to! All of the activities that were presented I will easily be able to take back and use in my classroom! Thanks for an amazing experience!

Susan G.

This past week I had the pleasure of attending Science in the Rockies with Steve Spangler. I knew it would be a worthwhile way to spend a few days of my summer, but I had no idea I would leave feeling more inspired than I ever remember being. Spangler and his team created an experience that will stay with me forever, and I cannot thank them enough. I enjoyed this conference more than my first time rock climbing and going to the Star Wars costume exhibit at the Denver Art Museum COMBINED. Thank you for making my summer, and sharing your passion.

Rachel K.

I have been an educator for over 25 years, and typically go to a couple of conferences/workshops a year. This experience has been the funniest and most enjoyable workshop I have ever attended, and it re-energized me for the new school year.  Thanks so much to Steve and his great team!

Juan C.

My sister Elise Saidler and I attended your conference Science in the Rockies. We are both Christian preschool teachers and we appreciated everything about the conference including breakfast,the shuttle and the hotel. We especially appreciated you, your family, your science teacher and your staff. This is my 14th year teaching preschool and I love science. I am so excited to usethese experiments to show God’s wonderful world to my students.

Joslyn M.

Science in the Rockies was amazing. It was a wonderful learning experience and just plain fun. Someone once said that education is not the filling of a pail but it’s the lighting of a fire. You have been lighting the science fire for years and I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to learn from you and to attend your conference. Thank-you to your wonderful staff and thank-you for all of the supplies that you sent home with us. I can’t wait to use them.

Elise S.

Science in the Rockies was an engaging three day adventure into science unlike any other workshop I have attended! After 30 plus years of teaching, I have found the one workshop that will truly impact my students with engaging lessons for curious minds. The activities are well thought out and align with both the Common Core and NGSS requirements. My classroom will never be the same after utilizing the experiments and activities I learned during this workshop. Thank you Steve Spangler and the “Spangler team” for enriching my future science lessons and helping me to create a better learning environment for my students.

Connie D.

This was one of the best workshops I have ever been to. We were busy the entire time doing experiments and watching as Steve demonstrated different procedures. I gained so much knowledge and can’t wait to share it with the other teachers at school. Great experience and I would recommend it highly!! #BESTDAYEVER

Gina J.

This is the second time I attended Science in the Rockies. In my 4 plus decades of teaching, this is the one conference I have returned to for more ideas, resources, and experiences. At the start of the conference, one of my table partners asked me if this event was really as good as everyone was saying? On the last day, she just smiled at me and said now I get it!

Peggy Bruno – Minto School Yukon-Koyukuk School District, Alaska

Truly was the best conference I have ever been to. I will be doing a “science circus” night at our preschool back to school night- on a smaller. Ersion. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cheri C.

The most important message that I took with me from Science in the Rockies is to create an “experience” for our learners, and that is what I left with as well. I feel rejuvenated to return to my classroom (and my home with my 9 year old) and bring forth the wonderment and inquiry found within the many experiments you shared! Thanks to you and yours for such an energized and organized delivery. I recommend the Steve Spangler Experience to anyone who wishes to spread the spark of learning!

Michelle S.

Thank you to the entire staff for the fantastic 2 1/2 days. Everyone was so nice, helpful and professional. This was the most useful professional development I have ever participated in, and I’ve been teaching almost 30 years. I plan on using some of the techniques and activities with the faculty during preplanning and with my students during the first week of school.

Patty S.

Science in the Rockies 2022 was a dream that started in LEBANON and came true in DENVER. We traveled 2 days to get here. My sincere words of appreciation and gratitude for Steve and the organizing committee for the highly engaging, fruitful, informative and productive conference. Thank you Steve for giving me the opportunity to discover the kind of teacher that I want to be and share unforgettable memories that will be engraved in my heart and mind forever.

Wafaa Kaouk – Amjad High School – Lebanon

The Science in the Rockies is unlike any other training I have been to. Everyone is constantly doing hands-on activities, and Steve Spangler presents the material in such an enthusiastic way; Everyone is having a great time! The experiments and information in the trainings are not only fun, they are also very applicable. I went to bed dreaming about ways to incorporate the science activities into my 2nd grade classroom. This training will definitely make a difference for me in my classroom!

Hanna M.

What I appreciated the most was not just the cool demos, but how Steve could explain the science behind it, AND give us ideas of lessons we could use them for. The way you presented the Film Canister activity this morning was exactly what I am looking for – an impressive activity, AND how to manage a lesson, guiding the students through the scientific method without the process being too long/complicated.

Carine V.

Best Conference Ever! The Spangler Gang did more than wow us with great science experiments. They motivated us to focus on the experiences that our students will remember and take home to the dinner table! I’m excited to use Steve’s materials across the curriculum.

Tammy P.

Science in the Rockies was by far the BEST professional development that I have attended in my 17 years of teaching. I learned a ton, laughed a lot and feel much more prepared to add science into my school day.

Therese S.

I can’t wait to implement the great ideas I learned at Science in the Rockies into my art class. Your message about creating a STEAM-rich environment for our students inspired me to create units that will have my kids asking more questions and communicating with passion through their art. Thanks for making STEM and STEAM make sense.

Rosemarie B.

Science in the Rockies was a wonderful opportunity to rediscover the joy of wonder. It was jam packed with fun, science, collaboration and the WOW factor. My 7th grade science classroom will never be the same again. Steve Spangler is a talented entertainer, with the heart of an educator, and the mind of a scientist. This combination makes for an amazing learning experience.

Janel S.

Science in the Rockies was awesome!  Normally I leave teacher trainings feeling like my head is going to explode and not in a good way.  I felt the same leaving SITR, but this time it’s exploding with great ideas, stuff I can’t wait to try, confetti, and party poppers!  I’m so excited to get started using what I learned!  I only wish the workshop was longer!

Aimee S.

This was the best conference I have ever been to. I have so many exciting activities, labs, and inspirational leadership projects I can use immediately with all the equipment I need to do them. So far I have already used four of the activities with my summer class and they are so excited to learn more. I can’t wait to attend my next Spangler event and am crossing my fingers for Science at Sea in 2017!

Jennifer L.

Steve Spangler and his team are friendly, accessible, incredibly knowledgeable, passionate about science and teaching teachers, and have thought of everything!  Not only did we learn engaging science demos, experiments, and lessons, we also received resources to help us integrate science with reading and writing and help build leadership and create community.  Science in the Rockies is packed with entertainment, excitement, and education and is the best professional development I’ve ever attended! Thank you SO much!  I can’t wait to use what I’ve learned with my students (and my nephews) and to share with the teachers at my school!

Christie F.

As a teacher for over 30 years, I have attended more workshops than I can count, but yours was truly amazing. The presentations were engaging and exciting. Every teacher at my table could not stop talking about how we would use each and every activity with our students. We were so inspired!
