“Innovative and fun approaches for scientific inquiry.”
The world is a rapidlychanging environment and we need inspired scientists to continue the processof discovery across all sectors– from health and medicine to information technology. We should always remember that it all starts with school educationexperience. Science provides the development of skills of students’ asking questions and making investigations; making hypothesis, inference of results of experiments to students. Like learning to count or to read, learning how to do science is a lifelong progress. Children of all ages benefitfrom exposure to science situation.
Engaging kids with science is easy. Teachers just need to remember to always relate science ideas back to their everyday lives. Best science lessons are the ones where you know students can’t wait to get home to tell their family about their new discovery about howthings work, or why things happen in their everyday life experience.
This courseteaches basic science concepts and answersto the questionssuch as: why is science important for everyone, what benefits children gain by learningscience early in their lives, how to teach sciencethrough fun, yet educational hands-on experiments etc. Via its contemporary theories, its practice and structure, the course delivers the message that science is not difficultand complicated and that there is alwaysa simple and creative way of teachingscience. But most importantly, through the course participants will discover that the key to science educationin schools is motivation for both teachers and children. An exciting class will inspire bothstudents and teachers to learn and to immerse themselves in the topic. This is best achieved through the provision of outstanding teacher resources and a faculty that is committedto making scienceexciting in the classroomenvironment.
