McClure Middle School is hosting a Science Career Day on Thursday, April 10th, and they need guest speakers to inspire kids and answer their questions on what it’s like to be a scientist.

In addition to speaking at Science Career Day, the school is also interested in field trips to real-life scientist work locations – a great opportunity for students to learn even more about what it’s like to work in a scientific field.

McClure teaches the following subjects, and is especially interested in guest speakers for these areas:

  • 6th grade – Chemistry, Biology, Genetics, Human Body
  • 7th grade – Chemistry, Physics, Catastrophic Events
  • 8th grade  – Astronomy, Physics, Catastrophic Events, Human Body

For interested speakers, McClure Middle School is at 1915 1st Ave W and the school day starts 7:50am and finishes at 2:20pm. McClure has 3 time blocks for Guest Speakers to share their expertise with students, presenting to 2-3 classrooms for 30 minutes. If you or your nominated speaker needs more or less time, just ask!

  • Block 1 – 7:30 am - 10am
  • Block 2 – 9:30 am  - 12noon
  • Block 3 – 12noon - 2:30 pm
