Vicki Cobb - The "Julia Child" of Kids' Hands-on Science
Vicki Cobb, the “Julia Child” of hands-on science, is a former science teacher with a M.A. in secondary school science. The publication of her classic book, Science Experiments You Can Eat, established her as an innovator in hands-on science. Take a look on her website at the hilarious one-minute videos from her book We Dare You! Her playful and accessible approach to science is evident in her 85+ books for grades K-8 that cover physics, chemistry and biology, biographies, geography, and the human body.
She has performed “Science Surprises,” her interactive and engrossing show for kids, in 49 of the fifty states (missing only North Dakota) as well as internationally. Vicki’s professional development program “Science That’s Fun to Read and Teach” is available as a videoconference and as a webinar. A veteran motivator/professional development presenter of day-long in-services/keynote speaker, Vicki uses her expertise, humor, wit and background as an educator to inspire teachers to make science teaching the highpoint of their day.
