Professional Development – STEAM Days of Summer

STEAM Days of Summer 2022

Building STEAM: Professional Development for K–12 Educators

You can inspire your students to do big things in the world. We’re here to help.  

We asked for your input, and you told us you need more in-service teacher support. Our Pro-D workshops embrace an approach to teaching and learning that reflects the BC curriculum’s focus on the Core Competencies and inquiry-based learning. Our hope is you will leave our sessions inspired to share your knowledge and enthusiasm for the topic with your students.

All workshops will take place online until further notice.
