Science teachers! Have you experimented with any new digital learning resources lately?
We have one that you won’t want to miss, which we’ll discuss during this workshop on engaging science students with new strategies and activities. In particular, we’ll zoom in on Arduino Science Journal (formerly Google Science Journal) and its hands-on approach to engaging students in the scientific method.
