    Canada’s national synchrotron research facility invites teachers of science at the middle years, high school, and college levels to our annual workshop in Saskatoon.

    Connect classroom science with science research! This workshop is an opportunity for science educators to learn more about current Canadian scientific research and hands-on activities at one of Canada’s biggest research facilities. Each year we open our doors to the nation’s science teachers, providing them the unique opportunity to:

    Participate in synchrotron experiments
    - Learn about novel research in many disciplines
    - Network with scientists who share their experiences and enthusiasm for science
    - Explore the entire facility
    - Make connections to science curriculum
    - An educational strength of Canada’s synchrotron is that it provides an exciting, real life context for many of the outcomes expected in the science classroom.
