“This program offers a unique approach to building students’ critical-thinking skills about science,” says EdCan Network director and awards jury chair Chris Kennedy. “Delivering this program to an entire school of Grades 10-12 students represents significant teacher buy-in and a shift in thinking about a subject that is still largely taught from a big textbook.”

A Ken Spencer Award recognition ceremony to honour the students, educators and community partners involved in this award-winning program will take place on May 1 at 7 p.m.

This is the 10th-anniversary edition of the awards.
