BCScTA Catalyst Conference

The BCScTA’s Catalyst Conference is held annually in October during the PSA Professional Development Day. Catalyst offers the latest in science content, teaching strategy, and research to enhance and expand your professional growth. Take this opportunity to collaborate with fellow science teachers from around British Columbia.

The BCSCTA invites you to join us and your science teacher colleagues from around BC to discuss the current issues and ideas regarding instruction, assessment, as well at the concepts of inquiry and STEM education.

Each year the conference begins with a keynote speaker to set the tone of the conference and to help everyone join in on the conversation. Each year a top speak from around British Columbia is invited to speak to the membership as well as present a workshop along aside our esteemed collection of presenters.

As a member of the BCSCTA we invite you to join us, and your colleagues both at the conference as well as in the planning. If you know someone who could present a workshop let us know.

We hope to see you at the next CATALYST. Want to register? Click here!
