2017 New Orleans Conference Strand

Inspire Our Young Learners

Exploring science is one of the many joys of childhood. However, many of our young students are given limited opportunities to learn science and therefore are missing the wonder and excitement of understanding the world around them. The goal of this strand is to engage our young learners in science by creating formal and informal education experiences that build upon natural inquisitiveness and use inquiry to help them understand their world. Young learners need quality learning experiences and activities that spark their curiosity, promote higher level thinking, and nurture a solid foundation in science. This strand will expose educators to instructional strategies that make connections between literacy and scientific concepts and build pedagogical knowledge of science teaching.
