STEAM Mentor Program


Our STEAM teacher mentors are your connection to learning more about science, technology, engineering, art and math in your curriculum.  Our mentors are based around the province to provide teacher/parent and student support in physical and virtual classes.   These workshops will be inquiry based and we look forward to sharing more about their ideas soon on the learning groups and learning commons website!  If you are wanting to know more about their programs feel free to email the mentors as shared below.
