We know who you are; you’re the one who can’t wait for science block, and who has stashes of science equipment tucked in every corner of your classroom...
Like all of us at TWOSE, you’re passionate about science education and you’re constantly looking for ways for you and your colleagues to bring science education to the next level. At TWOSE, we’re always looking for ways to improve our efforts as well, which is why we want someone like you to be the TWOSE Teacher Ambassador for your school!
Who is the TWOSE Teacher Ambassador?
This 2016-17 school year is the pilot year for the TWOSE Teacher Ambassador program. This new program is a way for us to connect with individual teachers at different schools across Edmonton. As a TWOSE Teacher Ambassador, you will have an opportunity to talk to us directly about what you and your colleagues need from TWOSE field trips. Because 78,000 students visit our facility annually, creating this opportunity to communicate with local teachers is very important to us.
We will select one TWOSE Teacher Ambassador from each school in Edmonton to serve for one year as a representative.
TWOSE Teacher Ambassador Perks:
- The chance to communicate directly with TWOSE educators about what you’d love to see at TWOSE in the future and your input to help make the science centre better.
- Unique opportunities to work with TWOSE educators to help promote science! We love having students attend our special events, and as a TWOSE Teacher Ambassador your class will have a better chance of being selected to attend these events.
- Monthly TWOSE Teacher Ambassador emails with new scientific discoveries to communicate to your students.
- 2 GA passes for each TWOSE Teacher Ambassador who attends the end-of-summer party in October 2016.
- 4 GA passes for each TWOSE Teacher Ambassador who attends the end-of-year party in June 2017.
- Exclusive access to seasonal bonuses and promotions (coupons, tickets, prizes).
Exclusive events for TWOSE Teacher Ambassadors:

What did you enjoy most? What could we have done better? Help us make next year's field trips your best yet!
- What if I switch to a new school next year?
