Min/Max Student Numbers
- Minimum: 10 students. Maximum: 30 students.
- Due to our funding parameters, we require you to have the minimum number of students present for this workshop. If this number is not met at the start of the workshop, Science World reserves the right to cancel.
Each student will need a computer, laptop, or tablet with internet connection.
- Only one computer needs to connect to the online meeting platform. This computer should also be connected to the classroom projector and to an audio system in the room so students can properly see and hear our facilitators. Your laptop speakers will not be loud enough.
- Please ensure the audio and video are working prior to the workshop and have the camera on your computer facing the students, if possible. This helps our facilitators gauge their engagement and understanding.
- Remote students will need to connect to the online meeting platform from their location and have an understanding of how to switch between separate program windows on their device. Alternatively, students can use two devices—one to log on to the learning platform and the other to code on.
10 Minutes Before
- A meeting link will be sent a week prior to the start of your confirmed program. Please review all communication from Science World to ensure that your classroom meets the technology requirements.
- Log on to the online meeting platform 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. Science World staff are available to test your tech set up if needed. Please email [email protected] to schedule a time.
Be the Bridge
- Teachers must provide an updated participant count to the facilitator at the start of the workshop.
- We need you to be the bridge between the facilitator and your students—we will need your help calling on students to answer our questions or to ask their own.
- Science World will not record the workshop.
After the workshop, Science World will send you a survey that will ask the demographics of the participating class:
- Total number of students
- Total number of students in underrepresented groups (BIPOC, Female-Identifying, Students with Disabilities)
Science World collects this information to accurately measure the impact and reach of our programs on underrepresented groups.
The demographic information that we are collecting is a direct requirement of our funding. We are using the language that is provided to us directly from our funders as outlined on our agreement with them. The focus of this funding is to ensure that students in underrepresented groups are equipped with the digital skills to be prepared for further studies. To accurately measure the impact and reach of programs such as ours on these underrepresented groups, we are asking how many students of these groups were in attendance for the workshop.
