About this Learning Opportunity

The new science curriculum is upon us. Do you feel ready? Join us for a 90 minute, virtual workshop where we explore Scientific Methods and how to apply them throughout the year to your other science units. You will learn what The Scientific Method is, its alternatives, and why they are essential to how science is practiced and taught. You will get the opportunity to ask questions and plan how your students can apply scientific methods to all science units. The first half will be a presentation while the second will consist of some demos/activities you can do with your students. Our aim is to have you feeling more confident teaching science!
