Science, Technology, Environment, and Math (STEM) Education in Canada has been tasked to change how students learn at every level of education – more experiential learning. Here at CLS we focus on building strong connections between science education and science research in our educational programming and resources - including in our professional development opportunities. Also as educators, we respect Indigenous Ways of Knowing and oral traditions. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in the spirit of partnership, reconciliation, and collaboration.

The CLS offers virtual and in-person professional development opportunities, most notably, our annual Teachers' Workshop - now known as Educators' Science Projects (EdSciP)! With all these opportunities, educators are provided with a look into current research connected to (primarily) science classroom curriculum, with hands-on experience where possible. The Education Team can also come to you and work with you to bring a session to your local professional development activities or connect virtually. Connect with the Education Team to discuss what works best for you.
The CLS offers a database of lessons, activities, and resources that connect to curricular goals and outcomes across Canada in several subject areas. Be sure to check these out, which are all housed on our Virtual Classroom website.
