Do you remember the ?best day ever!? of your elementary school experience? Was it spent learning science?
ASN believes that science can and should be that much fun. Our mandate is to bring science to life by providing unique face-to-face experiences between grades K-12 students and teachers and subject matter experts. By making science fun, we increase students? interest in science, their understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts, and their knowledge of STEM careers. We also increase teachers? understanding of science and provide them with hands-on ways to bring curriculum to life in their classrooms.
While the intermediate and long-term outcomes of our work are difficult to quantify, we know that increasing students? interest in science is essential to increasing enrolment in high school and post-secondary STEM programs. Ensuring that our future workforce is scientifically literate, with the skills and knowledge needed for tomorrow?s job market, begins by getting kids excited about science, and providing teachers with the tools and information they need to teach science in a fun and innovative way.
