“Wonder, Observe, and Explore” was the theme of the first ever NB Science Week and as the event concluded, over 2300 classes in our province did just that. Unable to host annual, face-to-face Science and STEM Fairs, representatives from all four Anglophone School Districts worked collaboratively to offer a weeklong virtual conference to raise awareness about the importance of Science in our lives today. Participation from students and staff in Anglophone North School District was outstanding.
Although it has been a unique school year in many regards, teachers and students in ASD-N certainly proved that they were up for the 2021 Take Me Outside Winter Challenge.
