Тема: STEM Education
Language of event: английски
During the upcoming webinar on Thursday 24 June 2021, 17:00-18:00 CEST, Dave Fish, a Teacher in Residence at the Perimeter Institute in Canada and a Scientix Ambassador, and Michael Gregory, a Scientix Ambassador for France, will present the Perimeter Institute’s resources for high school teachers worldwide. They will talk about their free, ready-to-use classroom resources, professional development workshops, and inspirational student opportunities.
At Perimeter Institute, their Educational Outreach team puts together leading scientists with experienced teachers to build useful resources to connect your classroom to leading science. Topics can range from the process of science to climate science, to black holes, quantum mechanics and particle physics.
The webinar will consist of a guided tour through Perimeter’s research areas, easily accessible resources, hands-on activities you could use tomorrow, and future workshop opportunities for you and your students. All resources are free to download in four languages from their online Resource Centre.
Dave Fish has been a high school Physics teacher for over 25 years. His involvement with Perimeter Institute dates right back to the beginning with the initial development of ISSYP, EinsteinPlus, and several other outreach activities. He has played a leading role in the production of most of the Perimeter resources. He has given workshops on modern physics at the local, provincial, national and international levels. He is currently the Teacher in Residence at the Perimeter Institute in Canada.
Michael Gregory is a Scientix Ambassador for France, coordinator of science programs for students of particular capacities at a bilingual school in Paris, and active member of numerous teacher groups.In his spare time, he travels to give workshops to teachers and guest lessons at schools, always looking for more ideas to share forwards. He has crossed over 30 countries by bicycle to connect with science educators and share ideas, many of which are shared on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/Myfavouriteexperiments. Once travel becomes easier again, he hopes to undertake another long bike trip, possibly from Paris to Ghana or Iran.
