Teacher Orientation

Physics, Science, and Math Days are just around the corner!

Please join us on Saturday, October 6, 2012, for Teacher Orientation. Teacher Orientation is here to help you start your planning and give you some ideas that will help build excitement for your students. Members of the Teacher’s Steering Committee will conduct a series of presentations, lead several hands-on activities, answer questions, and explore how to incorporate amusement park rides into your course curriculum. A packet of written support materials will be distributed along with a CD of resource material. Click here for a tentative schedule and description of the sessions that will be held during Teacher Orientation. Note that we will begin at 9:00 sharp. Light breakfast refreshments will be available ahead of the start time as well as several student video projects.

At the conclusion of the day, teacher participants will receive a complimentary pass to go to California's Great America during the remainder of the operating year 2012. (Excludes Halloween Haunt)

This event is free but we need you to register so we can plan enough material for everyone. Please either call California's Great America at 408-986-5947, or send an email to youthsales@cagreatamerica.com. You can also go to the Great America website and sign up through there. Be sure to include the following information:

Your Name(s)

The School Address
Your Phone
Your email
Your Role at school

Teacher Orientation will be held at Nea Community Learning Center in Alameda. Click here for a map to Nea. We are holding this event away from the park to avoid space conflicts and distractions that occur at the park. By holding it at a school site, we are able to take advantage of resources they have there. Next year we will move to a different site, likely on the west side of the Bay.

For any questions, please contact (408) 986-5947 or write to the webmaster.

We look forward to seeing you on October 6th, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm!
