Inquiring Minds

Children learn best by doing. The Inquiring Minds partnership offers teachers an opportunity to move their classroom to a community site for a week of hands on, multi-sensory learning. Student learning is enhanced by meeting curriculum expectations through meaningful connections to the real world.

The deadline for submitting applications has past. It was a record year – 277 applications. Thanks to all the teachers who showed interest in these powerful learning experiences. 

The good news we will have more weeks on more sites than ever before – 226 weeks in 12 different programs! Please feel free to contact site coordinators directly for more information about each different site. 

 

For those interested, here are the two promised links from the presentation at our information evening about brain development by Dr. Lindy VanRiper:

  1. Hi Marianne,
    Sadly, we are not working on a 2014 Beyond the Classroom Conference. We have had a number of changes in site coordinator positions in Edmonton Inquiring Minds and our resources for planning and delivering a conference are just not deep enough. We are putting our focus right now on the Edmonton Inquiring Minds Application process for 2014-15.
