- Adult Ed: Science in the Upper GradesStarts: 7:00 pmEnds: Tuesday, December 10 - 8:30 pmDescription: The uniqueness of the Waldorf system lies not so much in what the children are taught but in how and when. Experience the way science in the Waldorf school sparks the natural wonder and curiosity of the child and leads to true thinking and discovery. The approach is very different from the traditional practice of telling the student what he will see and then showing him. Join Waldorf grade school teachers Kathy Matlin and Debbie Dudeck and experience the difference for yourself.
