How do we know something in science? Literacy is a skill we need to parse the information around us. Participants will
explore scientific literacy by analyzing how technology and media can colour our understanding of the world. We will discuss
how to teach our students to best search for information and begin to build criteria for analyzing the information they find.
Grades 4 - 9
