Educators: Welcome to Camp Galileo Anywhere
Free High-Quality, Easy-To-Use Projects to Engage Your Students in New Ways
With Camp Galileo Anywhere, educators can leverage Galileo-style learning bundled with supportive resources like printable schedules, follow-up questions and more. We encourage you to use each week’s activities to supplement your curriculum or build on our ideas to inspire new activities.
DON’T HAVE A STOCKED CLASSROOM OR CRAFTING STATION?
We’ll do our best to highlight everyday household materials. And remember, being an innovator and using the GIA means leaning into courage, trying new things, redesigning when needed, and celebrating marvelous mistakes along the way.
