Bryan OuelleteSTEAM Exploration Centre

    For nearly a decade, Bryan has been working within the education system to transform teaching methods and instructional practices. His vision has led to some amazing student productions, most notably the YouTube channel Down2aScience. He is an advocate for student publishing, but most of all, student-led instruction. This vision entitles students the opportunity to discover, apply and interpret content knowledge, while achieving societal, collaborative and communication skills that will help build our students as individuals and strengthen their understanding of themselves. His implementation of challenges within the classroom has redefined how teachers are able to evaluate their students, and also gives the students a much better perspective and grasp of the required content knowledge. Most importantly, students will leave the education system with transferable skills across any workforce.

    S.T.E.A.M. Exploration Centre 
    In the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics playground, teachers are invited to come and take part in adaptive and innovative teaching methods. This session will incorporate and not limit itself to: how to use Sphero robots and Ollie robotics in the classroom, how to incorporate MakeyMakeys into classrooms, Using Pasco/AYVA scientific to transform learning and many more!
    This will give attendees the opportunity to see these devices in action, rather than just hear about them. Allowing them the opportunity to play, will encourage them to transform their own classrooms.
    Sessions offered at all time, Room 1097
