Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math? Curiosity on Stage is a series of short, interactive presentations that brings you face-to-face with researchers and innovators. Each week, a featured speaker delivers an engaging presentation followed by an interactive Q-and-A session. Curiosity on Stage invites you to learn directly from people working in the science and technology-related fields. Find out what they do and why it matters – and leave inspired by their stories of curiosity, overcoming obstacles, and innovation.

While everyone is welcome on the Demo Stage, this program is recommended for ages 10+.

This week: Learning and Teaching Science

Tom Noyes-Roberts - Guide at Canada Science and Technology Museum

frustration

Tom’s background is in Biology, but his passion has always been science education. That is to say, how we teach science and how to make it more accessible to everyone. Tom has worked with children and the general public now for almost 6 years in a variety of roles, teaching scientific concepts and ideas and learning about how we approach science, the difficulties, and how to facilitate teaching.

At Curiosity on Stage Tom will be going over a few topics from: why we find science so difficult, why science education is important, what does science really teach us and how we can make learning science easier. As well as a few tips and tricks for both parents and children interested in learning science.
