Teacher’s Outreach

WWEST has developed a teacher training session with UBC Engineering Recruitment, in which we introduce easy to implement, affordable, SET classroom activities, directly correlated with the Prescribed Learning Outcomes of the high school curriculum, to teachers in a Professional Development Workshop format.

The workshop demonstrates the activities and discusses how they can be used to encourage and foster critical inquiry and thoughtful reflection by students about the role of SET in society. A short keynote address by Dr. Croft emphasizes the role of a teacher in a student’s decision to pursue a future in SET and how an understanding of how SET serves our society can be particularly encouraging to women who are considering a SET career.

To book this workshop, please invite us to speak.
