Our Hands-On Approach
Our high-energy and interactive workshops use a hands-on, discovery-based approach to learning. Students work in teams through guided projects and experiments to gain an understanding of abstract STEM concepts. Our instructors also share related scientific research taking place at York University and discuss real-world applications of topics, making the learning relevant to the students’ day-to-day lives.
Our team consists of enthusiastic undergraduate science and engineering student instructors. They have an infectious passion for STEM, magnetic personalities, and a genuine desire to inspire youth. In addition to STEM subject mater expertise, our instructors have extensive training in pedagogy, best practices in teaching and instruction, effective classroom management and conflict resolution. They also have training in community building, diversity, and inclusion. Our team reflects the diversity of today’s GTA classrooms – meaning they make for great role models for your students!
