On October 5th and 6th, 2011, the Calgary Science School hosted the Forging Connections Conference.
This conference was a collaboration between teachers, art and science experts and parents with the goal of integrating art and science more authentically into the students’ learning.
This exciting two day event consisted of six, 105 minute sessions. Each was structured around a “show/tell/do” format where an artist (visual, drama/dance and music) showed a finished product; a scientist will explained the magic (science) behind it and then the students were able to make meaning of the knowledge through hands-on creation and exploration. Create, Explore, Discover.
The lesson plans for the 6 sessions are available on this site on the lesson plans page.
Hope you enjoy Forging Connections!
