Victoria, GOAEYC

That’s right, my students literally started yelling and screaming with joy when I said that we were going to do some Steve Spangler science experiments earlier this week. Amidst the commotion, I made a discovery. It’s not about the “activity” or experiment as much as it was about the way Steve taught me to teach the concept. He explained the connections with science to real life in a way students would be engaged. If he can engage me, I know my students will be engaged. Now, I need a class on how to keep my kids from screaming.

Steve engaged us by giving us the opportunity to perform the activities we would be doing with our students. We didn’t have to just rely on instructions in a book as guidance. By doing so many of the activities that we would do it allowed us to have a visual of the “whole” experience. We were able to be the students and enjoy learning which made us excited to pass on the experiences.

Steve made it fun, easy and the concepts so approachable and understandable that I am finally doing and enjoying science activities with my students. He talked about creating “transformational experiences,” well he did it on me.

2021 Virtual Participant, Story Time STEM

Steve Spangler’s approach to science makes learning fun for both teachers and students. The students really look forward to being scientists each Friday! Steve Spangler not only provides amazing science experiments but also shares life lessons from his own personal teaching experiences. As professional educators, this allows us to reflect on our teaching experiences as well and allows us to positively adjust our mindset in the classroom.

PD with Real World Applications

Steve engaged us by giving us the opportunity to perform the activities we would be doing with our students. We didn’t have to just rely on instructions in a book as guidance. By doing so many of the activities that we would do it allowed us to have a visual of the “whole” experience. We were able to be the students and enjoy learning which made us excited to pass on the experiences.

Participant, Virtual STEM Conference 2021

We just finished our virtual STEM workshop with you and so many of our co-workers commented they heard us laughing all day as they walked through the halls. I’ve been teaching 31 years and this is by far the best PD! I’ve always tried to make learning fun for my students, but wish I would have been introduced earlier in my teaching years. I’m not going to want to retire in a year!!

Best PD Experience in 31 Years of Teaching!

I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend your training at the Science Museum Oklahoma… and I will never forget the kindness and generosity you bestowed upon my family after the event. You’re an ordinary person who gets other ordinary people to believe extraordinary things about themselves and about the world around us. That makes you a hero in our home.

Josh J.

Your program and your team has helped bring our staff together like no other activity at our institution. We saw incredible cross-departmental communication, planning, camaraderie, and a sense of great pride that spread throughout the museum. The experience we created together was incredibly valuable to our institution, and we treasure the partnership we share.

Sherry Marshall, President, Science Museum Oklahoma

Our STEM experience with Steve Spangler was unbelievable. He shared classroom strategies for how to engage students on their level, to make it an experience, a memory, and not a worksheet. The Fueling Education winning schools will never forget their professional development experience with Steve – engaging, fun and truly inspiring.

Gina S.

Steve’s workshop is NOTHING like any workshop I’ve experienced in the past. Fun, engaging and connected to learning standards that I’m required to teach.

Connie F. – Portland, Oregon

The day after your presentation our participants were still talking about Steve Spangler. This guy is the S in STEM!

I love Science and I wanted to learn more experiments to do with my class.  This is my first time doing the conference, I loved everything about it.

You can not miss this workshop if you have an opportunity to attend. Your teaching will never be the same!

Veronica, Early Childhood Options

This workshop was so very interesting, even for me as a grown-up. It is rich with things that fill the student with wonder and a desire to learn more. All of the lessons make a student want to run out and show someone!

I will use more science hands-on activities to connect with children’s literature. I ‘ve used the same old fizzing volcano or fizzing pumpkin over and over again year after year. I have learned a lot of new exciting experiments in this workshop. Experiments that’ll nurture their natural curiosity and it’ll surely help the kids be thinkers and problem-solvers. Let’s promote STEM to these future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians! The earlier, the better!

I learned creative and engaging ways to make Science even more interesting and exciting, but Steve and his team took beyond that by connecting our favorite books with Science. It was AMAZING!!!!

Peggy Brookins, National Board for Certified Teachers

Best webinar ever! Over 10,000 educators watched your amazing webinar this afternoon. Whenever you present for us, we call it an “un-webinar” because you’re unlike anything we’ve ever experienced.

Take it from someone who has been forced to sit through tons of educational webinars… Steve’s workshop is NOTHING like anything I’ve experienced in the past. Fun, engaging and connected to learning standards that I’m required to teach.

We just celebrated Steve’s 26th appearance on the show… if that tells you anything. Steve Spangler consistently produces amazing results every time he’s on the show. He understands television and how to show his passion for making science fun.

Chris Cucci, Producer, The Ellen DeGeneres Show

You’re a total pro on camera! Mentos soda geysers and exploding Pop Rocks made our Science of Candy segments over the top fun. I’ve never heard the crew so excited about a location shoot.

Liz Hostetler, Producer

Food Network – Unwrapped

If you are looking for energy and surprises on television, Steve’s the master at it. Who would have guessed that Steve’s original segment showing something fun to do with a roll of Mentos and a bottle of Diet Coke back in 2005 would make our 9News science guy an internet sensation? Steve Spangler’s approach to doing television is always fun and engaging both for our viewers and our on-air talent. Bottom line… Steve knows how to create fun and viral television experiences that viewers remember.

Patti Dennis, Vice President, News

9NEWS – KUSA

Take it from someone who has worked with Steve on live television every week for the last 15 years… Steve knows how to create TV moments that viewers remember. Things fizz, pop and explode and so does the e-mail I get when he lights me on fire.

You gave us amazing television on Modern Marvels. One minute you’re talking about the science of super cold temperatures and the next minute we are all standing in the middle of a giant liquid nitrogen cloud. You’re a pro.

The Doctors show staff loved working with Steve Spangler. His demonstrations were the perfect illustration for what we were trying to show our audience… and the visual on camera was great.

Steve Spangler’s segments on News 10 were great. Ratings were high throughout the entire week. Best of all, I really appreciate his ability to work with our entire on-air morning team. Steve made them look like rockstars… and the viewers loved it.

AMAZING!!! Thank you all for an awesome experience that has truly sparked their interest in everything science.

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

Steve’s love of STEM is topped only by his genuine love for children. He challenges them to seek solutions, instead of providing ready answers. Steve teaches the kids that STEM goes beyond science. No one presents a science concept like Steve. My son calls him a trickster AND a scientist. Steve’s flair for presentation combined with authentic enthusiasm really engage my children. They couldn’t wait for STEM camp to start. It was the highlight of every day and definitely the highlight of the summer. Even with a Zoom class of 30 screens, Steve makes every child feel noticed and special. He praises every child and builds them up. Steve mentors the next generation of scientists, instilling both a sense of wonder and engaging showmanship. His love of teaching and of children is real and palpable.”

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

As life has moved online I was hesitant and not sure about virtual science, but within the FIRST FEW MINUTES my young scientist was hooked and participating more then he did during any other virtual class.  Steve and the whole team did a great job keeping the kids engaged and participating. Virtual STEM camp was an amazing experience! Don’t tell anyone but… I found myself finishing work early to get to participate in all of the experiments.

Jolena – Parent

My son kept telling me how much he was loving everything and how amazing it was to meet one of his idols. In a time where everything has been so uncertain and so much fun has been canceled, you have brought so much joy to our family!

Each day my twin girls woke up so eager and enthusiastic to start camp, and when it was over would say, “We can’t wait for tomorrow’s experiments!” Thanks to Steve for creating such an engaging experience.

Erin Voght – Parent

Thank you so much for making learning fun and reigniting the learning flame for my son. I know it sounds silly, but it warmed my heart when I heard him ask a question – I could see and hear his confidence!

Tamara – Parent

The learning keeps happening even after camp is over. Tonight we had a Bubble Olympics competition. Sawyer is absolutely loving camp. Thank you for making it so amazing and fun!

Jen Smith – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

As a parent it has been a pleasure to experience camp alongside my child.  It’s been a unique learning experience to see my child learn a subject and then apply what he has learned later on in the day. Each day he has asked to Facetime his grandparents and aunt who live in California to show them what he has learned from you. Thank you for the amazing week.

Jennifer Gorrell – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

On Monday, both my son and daughter said, “Now I love science even more because of STEM camp.” Thanks for making this the highlight of their summer!

This week has been awesome! I wish I had a dime for every time Delaney said, “Steve, you’re a genius!”

I’m a 2nd grade teacher & will be using some of Steve’s tricks next year!

Thank you for this experience!

Karen Blanton – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

I have to tell you I think this camp is amazing and Steve is great with the kids!  We stumbled on Steve by accident when I was looking for fun stuff to do in quarantine.  I don’t know if you do the virtual camps always or if this was a quarantine solution, but I hope you continue!  Declan loves it!

Virtual STEM Boot Camp

That’s right, my students literally started yelling and screaming with joy when I said that we were going to do some Steve Spangler science experiments earlier this week. Amidst the commotion, I made a discovery. It’s not about the “activity” or experiment as much as it was about the way Steve taught me to teach the concept. He explained the connections with science to real life in a way students would be engaged. If he can engage me, I know my students will be engaged. Now, I need a class on how to keep my kids from screaming.
