Are you a Smarter Science teacher?

Smarter Science

An open-source framework for teaching and learning K-12 science and developing the skills of inquiry, creativity and innovation in a meaningful and engaging manner.


We offer 3 separate workshops for educators to train in the Smarter Science framework in order to teach the processes of inquiry and technological problem solving.

Introduction to Smarter Science

In this workshop, designed for beginners, educators will learn about the 35 inquiry process skills in the Smarter Science Framework and how to use the Steps to Inquiry strategy to help students plan and implement their own investigations. Throughout the day, participants will learn how to scaffold the inquiry process from Level 1 to Level 4. Many demo’s and ideas to stimulate your thinking! [insert more info about this workshop]

Assessment & Evaluation of Inquiry

How do you assess inquiry? Participants learn how to assess ‘for, of and as’ learning of the 35 inquiry process skills and how to focus on the process as well as the curriculum content. Learn how to co-create assessment with your learners and how to focus on delivering and assessing the ‘Big Ideas’ in your curriculum.

Innovation & Creativity through Inquiry

By ‘Walking the Talk’, you will participate in a series of strategies that will guide you through the process of turning your teaching into a more Inquiry-focused approach. Brainstorm novel approaches to your current teaching. Turn practise questions for your learners into inquiry challenges. Learn how to ‘tweak’ your current favorites into inquiry explorations.
