We are pleased to announce that the Calgary Science School will once again host the annual ConnectEd Conference on May 24-26, 2013.
The conference will begin on Friday May 24, 2013 at the Calgary Science School on a “regular” school day. Attendees are encouraged to visit classrooms, observe lessons, and speak with teachers and students.
Saturday and Sunday will have scheduled discussion topics hosted at the school. As was the case last year, the sessions will be built around discussions and conversations hosted by a facilitator.
