Currently, programs are located in San Francisco, Alameda, Berkeley, Richmond, Oakland, Piedmont, Castro Valley, Union City, Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Danville, San Ramon, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Martinez, and more.
Toyologists learn on the job classroom management skills, and practice the Sarah’s Science approach of positive reinforcement to teaching and interacting with children. We foster an inclusive and inviting learning environment by ensuring that every student builds a working toy based on our science lesson during every class.
Those who wish to join our team must have demonstrated leadership/teaching experience, excellent communication skills, and a positive and energetic attitude. Experience working with children is a must. Upon being hired, you must be willing to pay for and obtain Live Scan clearances (fingerprinting background checks) and receive a negative TB-Test result - both of which are eligible for reimbursement after the completion of a full session.
Founded in 1987 by Sarah Shaffer, Sarah's Science is a women owned, community oriented science education company.

Ultimately, we believe that we can inspire our youth by showing them that learning can be fun and rewarding.
We offer outdoor summer day camps in Oakland and Berkeley, after school classes during the school year, day camps during school breaks, as well as evening and weekend workshops throughout the Bay Area.
