For Teachers, by Teachers
ScIC "Science is Cool" is brought to you by PocketLab, a science technology company founded by teachers.
We started ScIC "Science is Cool" virtual unconference in March 2020 as a way to make the best of our, um, unique situation, and create new opportunities for both teachers and innovative education companies. The spirit of our work as an "unconference" is to provide everyone with useful tools and valuable resources as well as giving participants a voice for what's next.
ScIC quickly evolved into a thriving, inspiring forum for teachers around the world to access tools, offer solutions, and also have a place to find camaraderie, and feel heard and understood.
Thank you for being an integral part of ScIC "Science is Cool". We are elated by how well these events have been received and intend to hang out with you for the long run.
I loved it and left inspired! This was a very organized conference. I am so so glad I attended.Thank you so much! I am just bursting with new ideas!
My brain is on overdrive!
It was my first time with ScIC and I am very impressed with the conference. Thank you for organizing it.
Well organized conference with relevant information and even better- immediately applicable ideas for free!!
I was in awe that I was in a conference with so many people from around the world....that wasa highlight for me in itself.....priceless information was provided
This is the kind of PD that gets me excited for school!
Please continue to do this conference virtually even after the world returns to normal. It gave so many people around the world the opportunity to go without having to worry about travel funds [or] days off. I loved all the connections to real science and can’t wait to start implementing them into my classroom.
I immediately shared the virtual resources with my district science curriculum instructors as well as with my science dept.
I always come out more inspired and recharged with ideas & strategies to use with my students.
