Equity is a term that many educators working in K20 science education seem to understand intuitively, but all understand, differently. Join me and BCScTA teacher-members for a facilitated discussion as we explore the elusive meaning; examine why it matters to science education; learn how to foster equity in science learning environments; and transform our practice by moving the margins to the centre aided by new tools and strategies.
Elementary (K-5), Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12)
