How do you do science labs remotely? Run to the kitchen and dissolve some eggs | Teachers' Lounge Podcast
On a new Teachers’ Lounge, we have two science teachers! Marty Baker is a longtime biology teacher and Eric Peterson teaches chemistry at Streamwood High School.
When Eric started, Marty was the one showing him the ropes of the classroom. Now -- 10 years and pandemic later -- Eric feels like he’s the veteran teacher who’s seen it all.
I sat down with both of them to talk about trying to teach science and do lab work remotely during COVID-19, how technology has actually changed things for the better in their classrooms and what a strange transition it’s been for students coming back in person.
If you’ve never listened before, our show is based on an idea -- we’ve all had teachers in our lives who shaped who we are. And we want to hear about the teachers who inspired you. Every educator we have on this podcast, whether teacher, coach, counselor or professor, is nominated by our listeners.
So, tell us about the person who comes to your mind. Shoot us an email and nominate an educator at email@example.com and they could be on the podcast! And subscribe to our newsletter to keep up to speed on everything to do with the show.
Also, Teachers’ Lounge is now on the radio! The podcast won’t change one bit, but you can now catch the show as an hour-long radio program every month on WNIJ. We’ll have multiple guests, stories, and new segments to hear. Our next episode airs on Friday, December 31 at 11 a.m. on 89-5 FM and right here WNIJ.org. Tune in the last Friday of the month at the same time for future episodes.
