Workshop on science fair
The Quebec Aboriginal Science and Engineering Association (QASEA) is pleased to offer a science fair workshop for teachers of Quebec's First Nations and inuit communities. The Smarter Science workshop offered in cooperation with Youth Science Canada (promoter of the Canada Wide Science Fair) will help teachers motivate and better prepare their students in developing their scientific projects.
Dominic Tremblay, the instructor, is a full-time freelancer in the field of K-12 education. He has over 13 years of experience in the classroom in both elementary and secondary school education and 7 years as a pedagocical counselor and consultant in education.
Smarter Science is a framework for K-12 science teaching and learning, and for developing the skills of inquiry, creativity, and innovation in any curriculum unit. Smarter Science workshops prepare teachers to successfully implement scientific inquiry in their classroom.
Two workshops are offered
Introduction to Smarter Science
With concrete examples and demonstrations, the instructor will help teachers learn about the 35 inquiry process skills and how to use the Steps to Inquiry strategy to help students plan and implement their own scientific investigations.
Innovation and Creativity through Scientific Inquiry
In the following workshop you will learn to apply the Smarter Science framework and strategies to transform existing lessons or create new ones that develop inquiry skills – and cover content of your school curriculum.
These half-day workshops are offered during the pedagogical days.
