Come and join Flinn Scientific Canada as we explore various safe, tested, and engaging science and STEM activities that your students can perform at various grade levels (6-12) and subject areas using commonly found household items. Flinn has selected activities that reinforce prior learning and introduce new content across the curriculum to allow students to demonstrate their comprehension. These activities can be applied as a pre-lab, blended, remote or distance learning modality. We will look at the best way to incorporate synchronous and asynchronous learning to provide the highest amount of student success and maintain their continuity of learning. This is a must-attend session for BC science educators looking for some additional resources to enhance student learning and facilitate teacher instruction simultaneously. You will be provided with over 50 FREE activities from FLINN to use in your science program!
