Science Inquiry for Teachers of Kindergarten to Grade 9: supporting your work with the new curriculum

“Science is a verb!” So says Dr. Gordon Gore, founder of the BIG Little Science Centre and retired high school science teacher and university lecturer. Interactive, hands-on, problem based, project based activities are a great match for science learning. Join us to understand more about these topics, share ideas in break-out sessions (set up on the day according to the needs and wishes of the group), and to discover how the BIG Little Science Centre is able to support you in the classroom and, with your classes, at the centre itself!
