This summer, Champions For Science is offering a four-day event full of binge-worthy sessions where you will have an opportunity to learn and explore with colleagues and leading science educators.
The 2022 CFS professional development series offers a "double-feature" starting with two days of engaging presentations focused on scientific literacy, STEM, real-world connections, and community to a final two-day feature of lively, mind-blowing demonstrations, hands-on labs, and access to digital downloads.
Attendees have access to ALL sessions for 180 days plus receive 19 PD hours on their certificate of completion!
Join other champions for science, like yourself, as we share successful strategies, best practices, engaging resources, and inspiration, so you are ready to take on the school year!
The Speaker Sessions of the Champions For Science virtual conference (Aug 11-12) offer professional development for teachers who are dedicated to working with students in grades 6-12. Join other champions for science as we share age-appropriate and engaging strategies, lessons, and resources that help develop new science skills through experiential learning while ensuring an enthusiasm for science. This year, speaker sessions focus on the following strands:
Innovations and Technology
Community and Collaboration
Demo Days (Aug 13-14) is a hallmark event of Champions For Science. This innovative professional development is geared toward all secondary science educators. Knowing that students need to explore through hands-on phenomena, investigations, and experiments, Demo Days focuses solely on providing sessions centered around demos, labs, and engineering activities.
Presenters will not just deliver the final product but will share set-up, safety, material management, student misconceptions, modifications, and special instructions as needed. Attendees will leave with an enormous bank of new hands-on explorations and a lab workbook that you can download and use with your class immediately!
