Getting at the Nature of Science by Doing! In this session participants will engage in three hands-on activities that explore the relationships between observations and inferences and model building and model testing.

The session will be conducted in English but the classroom ready resources are available for free in both French and English from the Perimeter Institute at resources.perimeterinstitute.ca.
