STEAM Days with WCDSB

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board has launched a new online campaign called #STEAMDays to assist parents in keeping their children engaged and learning as we work our way through the unprecedented COVID-19 shutdown.

 

Please view the attached VIDEO to learn more.

 

In times like these, it is vital for one and all to come together – and #STEAMDays will provide a convenient platform for parents and educators alike to share ideas, resources and fun ways to keep the learning process going.

 

As ideas are shared, we will gather some of them and post via our website: www.wcdsb.ca/STEAMDays

 

Any assistance your organization can provide in helping communicate #STEAMDays would be most appreciated.
