Grades 2 – 6
Join us for a week of immersive education, as part of Edmonton’s Inquiring Minds initiative.
During this Inquiring Minds program, students spend a full week at the Winspear Centre, exploring acoustics, music, and the science of sound through hands-on inquiry. You’ll work with our coordinator to plan your week, and will be given resources to incorporate your Sound School learning throughout the school year.
In the 2016/2017 school year, we’ll be offering 5 weeks of Sound School, for classes in grades 2 to 6
$700, class must arrange and pay own transportation
Weeks are limited and we're full for the 2016/2017 school year. Applications for 2017/2018 will open in March 2017.
What is Inquiring Minds?
Inquiring Minds offers an innovative approach to informal learning pioneered by Gillian Kydd and Don Harvie. Intriguing and enriching sites across Edmonton (such as museums, fire halls, civic venues and nature preserves) welcome classes of children to use their site as a classroom for an entire week. Students and teachers use this new ‘classroom’ to engage in learner-led, hands-on, inquiry-based learning and exploration through tours, journaling, and a host of creative activities. This model makes the stuff students learn in textbooks come alive, and has an incredible power to inspire students and teachers!
