Discover the Universe will be at the Canadian Astronomical Society (CASCA) annual meeting in Victoria to offer a Workshop for Elementary and Middle School Teachers. All teachers from the Victoria region are welcome to participate in this free workshop.

 

Topic of the Workshop

The workshop will focus on the Moon and the local First Nations knowledge associated with it. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Nick Claxton, member of the Tsawout Band and WSÁNEĆ Nation and a professor at the University of Victoria, as our guest speaker. You will also discover hands-on activities to teach concepts related to the Moon (phases, eclipses) and you will leave with new ideas and resources to help you in class.

The workshop will be followed by the public lecture by CBC’s Bob McDonald, also at the Victoria Conference Centre from 8pm to 9pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the public lecture.

 

Who? The workshop is designed for elementary and middle school teachers but we also welcome other education professionals such as science advisors. If you are a secondary school teacher, check out our other workshop.
