Event Details

This professional learning session will provide Early Years and Kindergarten to Grade 3 educators opportunities to explore effective learning strategies that purposefully integrate skills and concepts related to mathematical thinking with scientific inquiries and design and build challenges (technological problem solving).

Participants will:

  • gain hands-on experience with scientific inquiries and design and build (technological problem solving) challenges that integrate skills and concepts related to mathematical thinking in a meaningful way.
  • learn how science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) support development of students’ critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration skills.
  • meet and collaborate with colleagues and engage in meaningful discussions that support program planning in early STEM education.

Facilitated by:

Marietta (Mars) Bloch, Associate Vice President Professional Learning, Let’s Talk Science

Jill Snider, Education Program Consultant, Let’s Talk Science
