The Immersion Presents materials do not require program leaders to have a science background or teaching experience. However, it is advised that educators have at least basic familiarity with computers, especially if they will be taking advantage of the associated multimedia tools and online community.
Planning and Preparation
The developers have endeavored to minimize prep work on the part of the facilitator. However, the preparation for individual activities varies, and in some cases, there is set-up required. Before initiating an activity, the program leader should read through the set-up notes and implementation suggestions.
