Creative Lab: STEM to STEAM - 21st Century Learning
In May and October 2015, we held our first of these professional development sessions. Over 100 Educators were animating, balancing, building, evaluating, creating and thinking outside of the square and across the curriculum!
Stay tuned for Creative Lab 2016 by subscribing to our Learning e-news.

Download the program for Creative Lab (Oct 16-17, 2015) to see photos of our teachers in action! What the teachers said:

  • “The museum location allowed us to be immersed in the learning - a new, fun, and interactive way that allowed us to see the real possibilities for learning.”
  • “All of the workshops offered something that could be used in school classrooms. It also gave me some ideas about school visits to the Museum and making them more interesting.”
  • “Great workshop spaces; so different from a regular conference centre. It is inspiring to work in such a creative place.”
