Description

Immerse yourself in the univers of science with ASTER, an organization that offers workshops to support the work of teachers of elementary and high schools. ASTER provides services to schools since 1993. With subjects such as astronomy, rocks and minerals, climate change and chemistry, allow young people to learn with educators that are passionate about the subjects. All the activities will stick to the curriculum and have a content close to the learning goals. With complementary activities, students and teachers can develop activities throughout the year to keep the focus on the subject that they have been taught. Finally, teachers now have the chance to get online training to refresh their knowledge. 

The workshops are led by a scientific educator who adapts the knowledge to the level of the students to whom the activities are addressed and also promotes manipulation of science tools.
