Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I like how the speakers highlighted the power of questions. It really made me reflect on my Science classes, whether I am giving them the questions that would encourage active learning or just for the sake of giving them."
  • "I really enjoyed the webinar. It gave me ideas about how to boost my students' curiosity by facilitating a discussion about everyday phenomena and then encourage them to investigate their occurrence and nature."
  • "Professional yet approachable in terms of delivery of the webinar objectives to everyone, no matter what role they are in. I am a science teacher and an educator and I am impressed by the dedication, knowledge and experience of the panelists. Great job!"
