Can you think of a teacher who affected your life through inspiration and motivation? Maybe it was a science teacher who shared with you exciting demonstrations or encouraged you to participate in a local Science Fair! May be it was a mathematics teacher who encouraged you to find out how science and mathematics you learn in class can help you answer the most important real life questions. And, what about a Physical Education teacher who taught you the importance of routine physical activity and proper nutrition?

Great teachers inspire their students to become lifelong learners. Great teacher educators inspire their student teachers to be the best they can to help every student to reach his/her potential. Science and Mathematics Educators and students from the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Teacher Education Program and the larger Faculty of Education community at UBC invite guests from 5 to 105 years old to help us celebrate science and mathematics learning at UBC Faculty of Education through active participation in exciting hands-on and minds-on science and mathematics activities suitable for all those with curious and inquiring minds.
