Welcome to Catalyst For Science!
This resources site shares teacher reviewed and classroom tested science-based resources (lessons, activities and links). The first phase of this site includes resources populated from the BC Science Teachers' Association (BCScTA) and Science World archives, contributions from current teachers, and submissions by presenters at the BCScTA annual Catalyst conference.
The initial focus includes Science 8-10 topics which BC science teachers have identified as needing support, with a view to expanding to K-7 and senior secondary topics.
