We inspire student curiosity through participation in the Science Fair Program

Smarter Science Summer Summit - August 24, 25 & 26


Smarter Science and Science Fair Foundation BC are excited to present the Fourth Annual Summer Summit for science educators in British Columbia.

Smarter Science has generated a lot of interest and is being used as foundational pedagogy in British Columbia over the past few years.   The Redesigned B.C. curriculum emphasizes the inquiry process along with the curricular competencies which focuses on the process skills of Science.  Smarter Science is a framework that uses practical, hands-on Inquiry-based teaching and learning to build student understanding around the Big Ideas in the new curriculum. Join Mike Newnham –Founder, Smarter Science, Karen Morley - teacher and former President of BCScTA and Rosalind Poon - teacher consultant, Richmond School District for three days of engaging science teaching and learning.  

Our summer summit allows more time to learn about the resources and strategies that we offer. Our transit-friendly location at the Science Fair Foundation BC offices on Georgia Street allows attendees to take advantage of Downtown Vancouver’s diversified offerings. We provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for K-12 educators to extend their training, network with others, share best practices, and explore topics related to inquiry-based education in British Columbia.
