cousin told me I should apply for the science teacher workshop sponsored
by Upjohn in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I thought that they selected thirteen
teachers from a three state region. My mistake. It was thirteen teachers
from THREE COUNTRIES! Not only was it an amazing workshop, but they
gave each of us computers back when NOBODY had their own computer.
was one additional perk that came from participation in the ScienceGrasp
program. We were all flown to the National Science Teacher Association
Convention -- which just happened to be in Anaheim, California.
We even stayed at the Disneyland Hotel! The sixteen members
of ScienceGrasp presented a workshop where our book of lessons was
unveiled and distributed.
