Thank You to Corbett Grade School 2017!

March 13 and 14th, 2017 David R Shapiro returned to Corbett Grade School to present the Terra Tempo materials to students in the K-5 classes. This year, students at Corbett Grade School will be studying the Missoula Floods, so, having David speak was a natural fit. 

The presentation highlights the science and art of Terra Tempo: Ice Age Cataclysm in a 45 minute slide show. There is time at the end for Q and A as well as book and autograph signing. David is able to change the presentation to be applicable for students of various ages.

Corbett school hosted David as well as Erica Melville and Christopher Herndon back in 2010. Corbett was the first school to host the Terra Tempo team. Seven years and two Terra Tempo books later, David was excited to return to a new batch of students.

What is truly amazing is that the younger students were not yet born when David started to write Terra Tempo but they were still filled with enthusiasm for the book. This means that Terra Tempo is surely a timeless classic and is not bound by what is "in" at the moment. 

David can be booked for presentations through this website or contacted at
