TELUS World of Science is excited to offer a new Invisible Waste: Air Quality PD Session. This virtual session introduces educators to the brand new PocketLab Air sensor.
This 1.5 hour virtual session will introduce teachers to the science of air quality and offer ways of bringing this important topic into your classroom through hands-on activities and inquiry-based experimentation.
