Fostering Faith and Supporting STEM: An Educator Workshop on Science and Religion

Thursday, March 01, 2018 7:18 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

“If there seems to be a conflict between beliefs and facts, it is the job of all of us as educators to help students understand religious beliefs are rooted in faith while science is rooted in what we know today.” – Sister Buffy Marie Boesen, Angels Among Us

In a day-long workshop at the Boston Science Museum and inspired by the short story “Angels Among Us” by Lisa Y. Garibay (to be released Spring 2018), participants will hear from a panel of local professionals who have devoted their lives to both science and faith, then work together to create a collection of best practices, tools, and resources on teaching and discussing science in a faith-based environment.

Join in a discussion with local educators and reflect on how the interaction of science and religion has affected your life and the lives of students, develop an accessible network of diverse educators, and be inspired to continue the conversation with your students in creative and engaging ways.

Vouchers will be provided for breakfast and lunch in the Riverview Café. Certificate of participation available upon request.
