Spend a week at Calgary’s science centre with your class! Chevron Open Minds is a weeklong experience that provides students with the opportunity to explore, experience and develop skills to help them grow. Each class explores an authentic “big question”: How do we solve a problem? How do we want to be remembered? How can we belong through play? What is our footprint? What is our story?
Collaborate to solve problems and spark a passion for learning through STEAM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).
