Educators

Let’s Talk Science professional learning sessions use a skills-based approach to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) that focuses on the development of student competencies through inquiry and problem solving. Our sessions provide practical, age-appropriate, hands-on/minds-on strategies that can be easily incorporated into the classroom.

Features and Benefits

  • participate in, and develop, hands-on/minds-on strategies for supporting students to enhance their inquiry, problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills
  • build confidence and proficiency in planning and assessing an inquiry-based, curriculum-aligned program
  • engage in meaningful discussions and reflect on your current thinking and practices with peers as it relates to program planning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
