Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of science! Learn the ins and outs of mummification, peer into the Earth’s crust, sniff smelly minerals and meet a spindly-legged stick bug all while having amazing amounts of fun! Channel your inner scientist as we observe, experiment, and produce the weird and wacky things that fuel our scientific world!
Meet the Instructor: Bethany Kempster
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).
