Canadian Science on Stage festival 2018

Science on Stage Canada held its 6th edition of its biannual festival in Saskatoon from 9-12 August 2018. Educators from different corners of the country got together to share and learn from one another.

The event was hosted by the College of Education of the University of Saskatchewan. The major professional development stream offered to the participants was the Canadian Light Source which houses the 170 m synchrotron. The educators had the opportunity to visit the installations and to learn about this cutting-edge science and technology.

Participants also had the privilege to be introduced to the First Nations interpretation center in Wanuskewin Heritage Park where they were presented indigenous dances, science approaches, and meal.

During Science on Stage Canada events pedagogical discussions seeks to engage participants to share their views, opinions and solutions regarding important issues in the field. In this year’s event, the main question submitted to the participants was “Given the evolution of STEM, STSE, ESTEEM and now STEAM, how can the A for Art  be integrated into science teaching and learning?” You may read a synthesis of the discussion on our website at www.scienceonstage.ca.
