Critical Thinking and Scientific Literacy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Science is more than a collection of facts or information. Too many students (and people in general!) live with the misconception that if you could memorize Wikipedia or had constant access to Google you would know Science. But the Scientific Methods require more than information. They are actions that require students to be DOING instead of just knowing.

He will also demonstrate specific activities you can use tomorrow to get kids thinking scientifically and experimentally about everything in their lives.
