Meet the Instructor!
- Bethany Kempster has worked at the ROM since 2007 as a science teacher of both children and adults. A typical day as a teacher might be teaching kindergarten students about dinosaurs in the morning and quickly switching gears to teach teenagers about physical anthropology in the afternoon. Weekends are equally as diverse with Saturday mornings spent with children elbow deep in plaster of paris and Sunday afternoons spent teaching adults (and still occasionally being elbow deep in plaster of paris).
- Recommended for children 5 years and older accompanied by an adult.
- Limit 2 children per adult.
- Space is limited.
