"Captain Leslie" (aka Leslie Hellman) has been teaching
hands-on Science since 1995. She has worked with the
Chicago Children's Museum, The Museum of Science and
Industry and The US Forest Service (among many
organizations and venues across the country) and has taught
enrichment classes for years at multiple schools around the
greater Los Angeles Area. Leslie's Specialty is teaching
Science "in character" and captivating her students by
leading them through a dramatic process of discovering
Science while engaging their imaginations. Captain Leslie's
Science emerged as she combined her teaching skills with
her love of non-traditional learning and whimsical creative
drama background and was launched in May of 2007.
"Captain" Leslie (whose nickname comes from teaching in
Character in a Science Class, of course) holds a BS in
Theatre from Northwestern University.
