Can scientific knowledge change? Or is it just our approach to science that changes? When students begin to learn about STEM subjects in school, the traditional science teaching methods can give the students the impression that everything is already known, or that no discoveries remain.

In this session, we will cover examples of where accepted beliefs have changed as we have explored the world around us. We will also explore a unique mindset of teaching STEM subjects that encourages students and teachers alike to consider their classroom a living, breathing laboratory of critical thinking that truly mirrors the evolving nature of knowledge.
