Live From Roper

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

Since our eLearning Live! lessons were so helpful last year, we are continuing them as free “Live From Roper” offerings. Connect with our science specialist via Zoom multiple times for new lessons which will change every four weeks. Each half hour lesson is unique, engaging, and based on South Carolina and national standards. Multiple virtual visits encouraged.

Specifics include:

  • ten to fifteen-minute live demonstration by our Roper Mountain science specialist
  • reflection time to ask questions or offer comments about the activity via chat
  • total connection time is approximately 30 minutes
*please note: teachers are required to be logged in with their students
