General Program Description for LIVE STEM | STIM en direct

Between April 2022 - June 2022, Let's Talk Science will be facilitating a series of three LIVE STEM broadcasts to classrooms across Canada. These co-learning broadcasts are embedded professional learning opportunities for educators to learn alongside their students. In addition to supporting reflective teacher practice, the broadcasts also provide pre- and post-learning opportunities for the educators as a way to extend student learning between broadcasts that are connected to the Let’s Talk Science learning pathways.

During the broadcasts, a Let’s Talk Science facilitator will lead students and model for educators as they engage in activities designed to introduce and reinforce science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts. Broadcasts are available in English and French and are 45 minutes in length.

A recording of the broadcast will also be made available to watch on-demand when live participation is not possible. 

2021-22 season description:

The Grade 7-9 broadcasts have been tailored to complement the Clothing4Climate action project which aims to teach students about climate change through the lens of clothing. Activities for all grades will include the modelling of a variety of learning strategies as well as suggestions on how to integrate the UN Sustainable Development Goals into the classroom. 

Once registered, all participants will gain access to an educator guide that includes information on how to join the broadcasts, a list of the activities and materials required to participate in the activities, follow-up extension activities and the necessary links to watch the broadcasts live with their students.
