Canada 2067 is a national initiative to shape the future of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning, focusing on Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Using the perspectives and opinions of Canadians, Canada 2067 will develop an action plan and a national vision for STEM learning that will ensure young Canadians are prepared to compete, thrive and contribute in the rapidly changing world of tomorrow.
We’re going nation-wide in search of perspectives and opinions on STEM learning. Join us and share yours!
The BC Science Teachers’ Association is introducing the Science Roots Grant to support collaborative groups quality science education initiatives.
In recognition of this, the BCScTA is hoping to support several collaborative groups consisting of its members by providing funding for quality science education initiatives. These initiatives can take many forms and we are open to unique and creative submissions.
Examples of such initiatives could be: a collaborative teacher group developing assessment tools or science lab activities; developing methods of integrating more inquiry-based approaches; an exchange or articulation between elementary and secondary science teachers so that both levels vertically align with each other; a book club to expand on a teaching approach or idea; or sound approaches to authentically integrate First People’s Principles of Learning.
