The Spring Intake for the BCScTA Roots Grant is underway. We are currently accepting application until May 31. Please go to the following link to apply.
Communities of science teachers are the roots of the BCScTA.
The BScTA is offering another two Science Roots Grants to support collaborative groups in quality science education initiatives to its current members for the 2018-2019 School Year.
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.
For our last intake, the Science World kindly supported the Roots Grant recipients with admission for up to 90 students from their respective schools and $750 each for reimbursement of transportation.
