Dear Friends,

About Matt Black:
Matt Black has been a professional educator for almost two decades, and has always loved making music fun for kids. His interactive performances incorporate humor, movement, silliness, singing, and even some (gulp) learning.

Apart from his work as a musician, Matt is a science teacher at the Lennen Bilingual School in Paris, and has previously served as an educator and program director for the Connecticut Audubon Society and the New Canaan Nature Center in Connecticut.  He was formerly on the Executive Board of the Connecticut Outdoor and Environmental Education Association, and has also served as a lecturer at Yale University and with the Yale Alumni College Abroad program.  He holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and was the editor of the Franklin Watts Encyclopedia of the Environment among several other science and environmental publications for children. You can learn more about Matt at www.musicwithmattblack.com.

We look forward to nurturing the Little Mad Scientists' Club in the weeks and months ahead. We welcome and encourage parents to lead  talks, do show-and-tell, and share their expertise. 

Thank you Julie for hosting Matt’s workshop. We hope to hear from more parents who can host other workshops for curious minds.

Gifted in France is a loi 1901 non-profit association. GiF does not endorse speakers or their material, but aims to provide a wide variety of ideas and discussions about the educational, emotional and social needs of the gifted and twice exceptional population. In addition to meetings for parents, GiF also organizes science and creativity workshops for kids, as well as the annual Paris Spelling Bee, which is a community-wide enrichment event open to children in CE2-4ème.  

Best regards,
