Science Discoveries: Exciting ways to weave science into the programme of inquiry

This workshop will enable participants to explore the fundamental concepts of PYP science while experiencing the wonder of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. There are three main areas of focus for the workshop:

  • Exploring the fundamentals of inquiry-based teaching and learning, with a focus on understanding what scientists DO
  • Connecting science to every transdisciplinary theme in the PYP, using object-based learning and the Museum to generate creative and innovative ideas for making those connections
  • Bringing tools and resources back to the classroom, including ideas for new hands-on activities, educational websites and children’s books that focus on the process of science


Participants will use their experiences at AMNH to make connections to museums, parks and resources in their local communities to implement relevant and engaging units and learning experiences for their students, as well as how explore how to engage students in scientific inquiry.

Three hours of this 15-hour workshop will be held ONLINE in the two weeks before the on-site dates. Participants will receive information about accessing and using the online space from their workshop leaders and staff at AMNH. Online participation is required in the form of reading responses and forum discussion.
