Featured Project

Replacing animals in secondary school science education

AiSPI is currently funded to evaluate how well students meet their learning objectives when they use virtual dissection tools compared to using animal specimens for dissection. We are seeking science teachers in the Lower Mainland (near Vancouver, BC) to help us test these tools. To learn more visit our Current Projects page.

If you would like to participate, would like more information, or would like to arrange a class visit or information session please get in touch: contact@animalsinscience.org

In support of this project we will be participating in the following events in 2017 – we hope to see you there!

PSA Super Conference: October 20 and 21

Science World Teen Tuesdays: October 24, November 21 and December 19
