NoMADS Tribes School & Childcare Facility Visits

Option 1 - One visit

Team Cooke will visit your school or facility once and host an interactive presentation with groups of any size about bacteria, antibiotics, the International Space Station, and our experiment! You then have the option of running the engineering challenge with your students after we leave. 

Option 2 - two (or more) visits

Team Cooke will visit your school or facility twice. At the first visit, students will learn about bacteria, antibiotics, space, and our experiment. In between visits, your students will work on their engineering challenge. When Team Cooke returns to your school, students will present their engineering challenge solutions to the team, and we will award accolades to the best! Virtual second visits are also available.
