|Making a big difference with very little: Creating a community resource for hands-on math and science activities on a "shoestring budget"
Since 2010, we have hosted five annual Family Math and Science Days where UBC Teacher-Candidates engage the general public in hands-on inquiry activities. This year we attracted 400+ guests and 60+ Teacher-Candidates! We aim at empowering Teacher-Candidates in math and science education by providing them with rich inquiry-focused teaching experiences. Over the five years hundreds of low-cost, safe, and ‘green’ hands-on math and science activities have been created. However, due to budget limitations, we have not had the means to document them. This project will fund the creation of a database of these activities in order to share them with all Teacher-Candidates in the Faculty. It will be useful for Teacher-Candidates’ coursework, during the practicum and after graduation. The Database will be populated by Teacher-Candidates (while supervised by faculty) and will continue to grow beyond this grant. It will support and further another successful TLEF-funded project that we recently completed.
