Catalyst 2016 Conference
October 21st, 2016 - Richmond, BC

Keynote
Dr. Judy Thompson - UNBC

Dr. Judy Thompson will talk about how Indigenous perspectives can be woven into the new curriculum. She will also introduce an Indigenous teaching rubric that teachers can use to be reflective about their own practices. Her presentation will hopefully help to break down some of the barriers as teachers experience as they approach the redesigned science curriculum.

Grade 10 - 12 Science Curriculum Drafts

The Ministry of Education will be posting the revised draft curriculum for Grades 10-12  to their website (https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/curriculum) later this summer.

As curriculum is still being prepared for the website, we’re happy to offer a preview of the Word document versions of the draft Science 10-12 curriculum.

A feedback process will be established on the Ministry of Education website along with the posting. Feedback received will be used to guide revisions and finalize the curriculum during the 2016/2017 school year.

Scientist in Residence K - 7 Lesson Plans

The Scientist in Residence Program lesson plans are available to educators and the public. The lesson plans fit with the BC Ministry of Education guidelines for Science K to 7. These lesson plans, together with the enthusiastic students’ quest to know more and the experiences gained by elementary school teachers and scientists, are the legacies of the Scientist in Residence Program.

Scientists and teachers work together to develop and deliver science units comprised of hands-on lessons on specific themes. There is a major focus on the experimental process of science. Opportunities are created to link lessons to other areas of the curriculum, such as math, fine arts, English and French language arts, and First Nations. Some lessons focus on issues facing society such as marine pollution, climate change, soil erosion, biodiversity, and the importance of protecting the environment and ecosystems.
