PD Opportunities

Professional Development Opportunities in STEAM

With Science Fair fast approaching, Science East is offering workshops and advisory sessions at your school for students and teachers.  Rather than making the same presentation every class, they can focus on your needs! See the flyer for more details! http://stemnorth.nbed.nb.ca/pd-opportunities/gallery/science-fair-workshops-offered-science-east

**UPDATE**

Thanks to funding support from the Government of Canada’s CanCode program, LTS are now able to offer financial assistance in the form of a travel subsidy pool to teachers who are travelling more than 150 km to attend the Moncton summit. 

 

Partial coverage of travel expenses will be based on a percentage of total applications received and distance of travel.

To participate in the travel pool, educators will need to register for the summit by end of day Wednesday, February 19, 2020. As a reminder, the registration link for the Moncton summit is here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/84828467229
