View this edWebinar to explore how phenomena-based learning and the right science content can cultivate curiosity and shift student mindsets, helping them grow from in-class problem solvers to real-world solution seekers. Hear from Rebecca Abbott, Professional Learning Lead from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, to learn ways to elevate your science implementation, build student agency, and increase engagement in science.

With these tips, students will not only build strong transdisciplinary skills that strengthen their college and career readiness, but they’ll also boost their overall literacy, collaboration, and critical-thinking skills that will help them succeed in your classroom and beyond.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary school teachers, middle school science teachers, and building-level leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
