Delegates can complete Workshop 1 at the Canada-Wide Science Fair

Normally offered as a full-day workshop at a cost of $100, Youth Science Canada is pleased to offer CWSF delegates the opportunity complete workshop 1 (Introduction to Smarter Science) at no cost (offered in English only).

Last year, we offered you a one-hour teaser. This year we are pleased to offer the full workshop including certificate of completion. Registration is part of the CWSF on-line registration system.

In this workshop, designed for beginners, educators will learn about the 35 inquiry process skills in the Smarter Science Framework and how to use the Steps to Inquiry strategy to help students plan and implement their own investigations. Throughout the day, participants will learn how to scaffold the inquiry process from a guided inquiry to an open-ended inquiry. Many demos and ideas to stimulate your thinking!

Workshop will take place Tuesday May 14 and Thursday May 16 from 9 am to 12:30pm.
