ChickQuest TrainingCincinnati Public Schools is filled with amazing and dedicated teachers. On October 28, 2017, six of those teachers gave up their Saturday to attend a training at the OSU Extension Office in Hamilton County to learn about how to better provide their students with a positive experience hatching chicken eggs in their classroom. The training was only a couple of hours but the opportunity to network, engage and connect to talk about the incubation project provided the teachers with invaluable experiences.

The greatest value was in being able to connect with each other and intentionally ask questions as they worked on the various projects and activities. Teachers were able to learn how to set up an incubator, set up the brooder, dissolve an eggshell, care for the growing embryos and design egg catchers.

All six of the teachers in attendance were from Cincinnati’s various Montessori schools and demonstrated a strong commitment to student success and excellence. We look forward to working with them again in the future and are happy to provide them with ongoing assistance as they hatch their chicken eggs.
