  • Explore high-quality science lessons.
  • Utilize a tool to support you in designing phenomena-driven lessons.
  • Leave with a collection of resources to improve your phenomena-driven instruction.

Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I appreciated the focus on local, 'normal' life phenomena, reminding us that we don't need the super flashy to trigger those high quality observations and questions."
  • "I love this topic and think it is so important. I loved seeing an example in action through the video with the teacher and her class. It was a great reminder of how powerful it can be to use phenomena to engage students."
  • "It was very inclusive for all to express ideas. I enjoyed learning from others, and the most interesting was learning about a new topic."

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' account page for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
