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.

SAVE THE DATE:
This year’s Inquiring Minds Open House is Wednesday January 28th, 2015 at the Edmonton Valley Zoo (more details to come)

 

For those interested, here are the two promised links from the presentation at last years 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.
