Online Courses

 

All of our online courses are free, self-guided, and aimed towards educators (teachers, teacher candidates, and administrators) who are interested in developing their capabilities and confidence in teaching engineering activities in their classrooms. Activities in these courses relate to BC’s Science and Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies (ADST) curriculum, however, you may take these courses from anywhere in the world! Our goal with these courses is to make STEM activities, resources, and tools, more accessible to educators, to further our goal of breaking STEM barriers in classrooms. Each course entails hands-on activities, downloadable lesson plans, assessment suggestions, discussions, and more! Check out the different courses we are currently offering below!
