Space Educators Institute 2021 Virtual Conference
The Space Educators Institute is a 2-day conference focused on providing training in space themed resources for formal and informal educators from across Canada. The Space Educators Institute aims to create a national learning ecosystem that unites educators across Canada. Our vision is that the space community can support a strong science culture in Canada, through a networked learning ecosystem that could empower anyone to be a 21st century learner and global problem solver, and help accelerate innovation, productivity, inclusion and entrepreneurship.
The purpose of this conference is to support educators and provide them with the tools to teach space science and technology through a series of workshops.
The workshops will be based on the K-12 Earth and Space Science Curriculum and led by educators and outreach professionals from educational institutions, organizations and industries. This will be a unique opportunity that will include a variety of discussions on current topics about space science/exploration. The conference will also provide time for participants to explore the materials and discuss the concepts with fellow educators, workshop presenters and experts from academia and space industries.
