Here’s what teachers are really saying about a Steve Spangler Experience…

We were able to hear about the teachers who inspired Steve and learn teaching strategies in real time. He inspired me to go into my classroom Monday and engage with my students in a whole new way.

I know you saw the reactions today but can I just say how incredible it was to watch the teachers connect and truly understand your “Best Day Ever” message. I’m blown away by your passion and mission to empower teachers to go out and empower kids!

Teachers can’t stop raving about Steve’s presentation. He created a truly unforgettable experience for over 700 classrooms in our school district. Get us on your calendar for next year!

I had so much fun I almost cried when it was over. Shooting toilet paper out of a leaf blower was just waaaaay tooooo much fun. The excitement of the whole day was truly a “best day ever” experience.

Jody M. – Lake County Quality Cares Workshop

Best training I’ve been to. Truly. After the last 2 years… feeling a smidge burnt out and bogged down (uninspired), Steve Spangler completely reminded me why I do what I do. Got me excited for Monday, and who gets excited for Mondays?!?

Jacqui J. – Lake County Quality Care Workshop

I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Steve speak once before, but Saturday just hit a little different for me. There was a moment that I started crying because seeing the look on our participants’ faces… I realized that WE created this amazing experience together. Steve helped me rediscover my passion. Thank you for working with us and making sure we had “The Best Day Ever”!

Angela Cuellar – Director, Lake County Office of Education

At the Splash 2021 annual conference, we were excited to honor Steve Spangler with a lifetime achievement award on behalf of thousands of early childhood educators who have benefited from his wisdom and kindness over the last 20 years. We believe Steve has done more to inspire early childhood educators in STEM than anyone… ever. I can’t give him any higher recommendation.

On behalf of the entire Colorado Rockies organization, thank you for making our Weather & Science Day events so successful for the past 10 years.

So many great ideas for our teachers to put into practice right away. Steve passion for making STEM exciting and approachable was exactly what our teachers needed.

Engaging, fun and filled with ideas that our participants could really use. Never knew virtual events could be this good.

Your keynote at GYTO literally blew us away. Your “Best Day Ever” message resonated so well with our conference attendees – they loved you! Honestly, your keynote presentation was more than we could have ever expected. On a personal note, your humility and humble spirit is something that we both admire so much. Welcome to the GYTO family.

Hope and Wade King, Co-Founders, Get Your Teach On

Our adult learners had the “best day ever” when Steve spoke to them about “Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists and Engineers”. By weaving personal anecdotes and professional experiences into his story, he demonstrated the true secret sauce to engaging young people in our lives around science. Our students came away with some fun, easy and relatable activities, and a focus on creating memorable experiences to help inspire the next generation.

Lynn Wells, University of Denver Enrichment Program Director

STEM for Little Sprouts gave our pre-k teachers the real-world tools, strategies and best practices the needed that inspire and motivate children to really do science.

Michele Olsen, Early Childhood Director, Terrebonne Parish School District

Best Day Ever! Steve Spangler’s STEM for Little Sprouts workshop was the best professional development series the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education has ever offered. Steve helped our teachers think differently about STEM and opened their minds to everything that’s possible.

Beth Aspden, Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education

The conference was stocked full of information, wow moments and you can’t beat the fact that supplies for the classroom was also included. This was never a boring conference and I could not wait to see what Steve would do next. I also appreciated the fact that Steve explained EVERY “trick” and showed how it could be applied in the classroom to make a real life connection with the students.

Alisa, SITR Virtual 2021

Wonderful workshop Steve! Demonstrating experiments for teachers lights a fire of excitement to get back into the classroom. Giving teachers the materials to follow along with the demonstrations makes the learning experience much more lasting – Seeing AND doing is key.

Melissa, SITR Virtual 2021

The demonstrations and hands on materials are fantastic.  Phenomenon based learning strategies. To engage students in real world science experiences that allow them to make connections and create new things.

Heather, SITR Virtual 2021

There are numerous strategies from this workshop that I will use in my future teaching. Steve’s delivery of content is high energy and engaging. Steve also asks strong questions that encourage students to practice critical thinking skills.

I’ve taken many courses from Steve, & they all have been amazing. My students absolutely LOVE & look forward to science. Thanks Steve!!

If you can, just do it! So much great ideas, information, presentation skills, and philosophy to encourage and invite student engagement. Inspiring workshop – I can’t wait to use in the classroom and lab!

Heather, SITR Virtual 2021

The Science in the Rockies workshop isn’t just about experiments that can be incorporated into your classroom lessons. It is more importantly about the excitement, every day learning experiences, and connections that can be fostered in your students and just as importantly, yourself as a teacher.

Judy, SITR Virtual 2021

This workshop was inspiring! I can’t wait to bring these ideas to my students to grow empathy and community.

Rachel, ESC 10

I’ve worked with many speakers, artists, and entertainers over the years, and no one has been as easy to work with and professional as the Spangler Team. Every detail is well thought out and the team ensures nothing is missed or left to chance. Steve, Carly, and Higgins make up an incredible team!

Chase Mayo, Get Your Teach On

I just thought we were doing some science experiments today but it was a nice surprise to see your passion for kids that the science became secondary.  Thank you for sharing your gift Steve! I’m taking teaching enthusiasm back to my classroom.

Nicole, Region 10

This virtual workshop was so great.  While the science experiments were great, I love your passion for wanting us to engage with each other and the children in our early childhood classrooms.  Thank you!

Decker, GOAEYC

Thank you.  This was the best workshop I’ve attended virtually.  I was engaged the entire workshop and wish it could have been longer.  Can’t wait to try what I’ve learned in my early childhood classroom.

Carmen, GOAEYC

This workshop has helped me see that children start to follow their dreams at a young age, and it’s so important to teach them how to wonder, discover and explore the world. Thanks for the amazing ideas!

You made me remember why I decided to start over and be an early childhood teacher.  Thank you Steve!
