Event description

Description

Join colleagues for a full-day professional learning Summer Institute and participate in hands-on/minds-on strategies that will develop student's inquiry and problem-solving skills. Resources will be drawn from Let's Talk Science's IdeaPark website; a great resource for early years, Kindergarten and primary grade educators with a suite of classroom-ready, skills-based resources.

  • Gain hands-on/minds-on experience with student-centered, curriculum-aligned resources for your Early Years to Grade 3 classroom.

  • Explore scientific inquiries that enhance students’ ability to observe, predict, sort and classify, compare and contrast, and draw conclusions.

  • Participate in design and build challenges that support the development of students’ problem identification, designing, planning, creating, testing, and evaluating skills.

  • Learn how skills related to understanding decomposition, abstraction, pattern recognition, and algorithmic thinking support the development of students’ computational thinking skills.

  • Collaborate with colleagues and engage in meaningful discussions that support program planning in early STEM education.

This is a full day of professional learning which includes exhibitors' displays, morning refreshments, lunch, parking and classroom posters to support inquiry and problem solving. At this workshop you will receive your own copy of Let's Talk Science's new book for early years and primary grades called What is an Insect?

BONUS: Attend this workshop and be entered into a draw to win a Samsung tablet valued at CDN$200!
