Tiny Science for big thinkers
HIgh-quality science classes with Jen the Entomologist
Everyone in the world has personal experience with insects. Most everyone has looked closely at an insect and many kids are quite informed. This base of knowledge allows Jen to jump right to the good stuff she learned when she was in graduate school. Insects are a fascinating group of animals and since young kids are generally familiar with them, Jen can teach elevated entomology to nearly anyone.
Tiny Science isn't really about bugs.
It is Tiny Science's mission is to increase scientific confidence in all learners, especially early learners. Jen's talent for teaching and her galactic enthusiasm for insects and biology come together for the most fun science classes ever. Kids scream "SCIENCE CLASS!" when they see Jen arrive. In fact, adorably, most of Jen's young students think her name is "Science Class". Working with preschoolers is so great.
Science class is a time for a calm body and calm voice. These high expectations are met with pride as our class begins with a songful review of what we've learned in previous weeks that quarter. The main dish is a fascinating lecture focusing on one insect and featuring informative photos. After lecture we move to tables to express our new ideas on a coloring page of the featured topic.
Fun songs and facts make it all the way home, with parents reporting that their child teaches the family new, high-level, and accurate entomology at home. The pride!! This is what Tiny Science is all about: Increasing learner confidence in their role in science and building the foundation for a lifetime love of science.
Jen the Entomologist teaches high-quality entomology classes for kids. Tiny Science classes engage young kids (and their families!) with fun and interesting information about these very familiar animals. We draw a lot, sing original, catchy, and scientifically true songs, and learn some graduate-level concepts and words about these familiar animals,
all made especially for young kids.
