About this learning opportunity

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 in numeracy with scientific inquiries and design and build challenges.

You will:

  • Gain hands-on experience with scientific inquiries and design and build challenges that integrate skills and numeracy in a meaningful way.
  • Learn how science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) support development of children’s communication, creative, critical thinking and collaboration competencies.
  • Meet and collaborate with colleagues and engage in meaningful discussions that support program planning in early STEM education.
This session addresses the TQS competency #3: Demonstrating a Professional Body of Knowledge

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
