Symposium strands include:
Design and Engineering Principles-Exposing educators to the engineering and design practices, this strand guarantees to tap into the creative side, look past content knowledge toward the process of doing science.
Resources for Inquiry-Learn about resources that provide educators with strategies, protocols and tools to promote curiosity and foster questioning, critical thinking, and problem solving. Learn how to nurture and preserve a curious mindset.
Earth, Life and Physical Science Content - Science content matter focuses on the science facts, concepts, principles, theories, etc. that are important for all students to know, understand and apply. Educators will explore resources and opportunities that encourage students to develop decision-making abilities and engage in hands-on science.
Arts and Literacy - Educators will understand the importance of getting their students to read and write in their classroom and the ease with which it can be accomplished. Examine the cross-curricular connections between science, arts and literacy, to provide a creative bridge, reach diverse learners and fully engage the brain.
Mathematical and Technological Applications - Integrating math and/or technology in instruction acknowledges the importance of understanding problems, developing and using models, constructing viable arguments based on evidence, and critiquing the reasoning of others.
