Engage your students with inquiry through science investigations and technology projects supported by CREST.
Professional learning with CREST education specialists
The goals of the professional learning program are to enable teachers to build capacity for facilitating open inquiry. To achieve these goals, the CREST professional learning program provides opportunities for teachers to engage with, and discuss, open inquiry, reflect upon and improve their teaching philosophies and practices, and build their networks with other teachers.
Our workshops provide opportunities for teachers to share their practice, experiences, and ideas, and collaboratively advance their knowledge and understandings of and about science, technology and engineering, and pedagogical practices for facilitating inquiry. Teachers in any stage of their career, with any degree of experience, and who identify as novices through to expert teachers are encouraged to engage in our professional learning program.
Build capacity for facilitating open inquiry and established and maintain a culture of inquiry in your classroom or school with CREST professional learning (Creativity in Research, Engineering, Science and Technology). Find out how CREST can support students in all levels to develop STEM skills through inquiry in one of our online workshops. We will be introducing new CREST activities throughout the year.
