How Science Is Best Learned

Session Description

Too often academic subjects are presented from the standpoint of how  material is best taught not how it is best learned. The difference when the focus is on best learning practices instead of best teaching practices is profound for the learner. It changes the learner’s relationship learning. Join science author and educator, Blair Lee, for this talk about how science is best learned.

In this workshop, you will learn what these terms mean and have fun doing it! Children 7+ may be dropped off. Tweens, teens and adults are also welcome in this session.
