Replacing Animals in Secondary Education
At AiSPI we’re working hard to replace animals in secondary education by helping teachers make the switch to non-animal alternatives to dissection. If you value this work, please consider supporting us with a donation.
Are you a science teacher looking for ways to switch to non-animal alternatives for dissection? If so, we’ve got you covered!
We are currently engaged in several different research projects to explore the issue of replacing animals in secondary education.
Events and Outreach
We have been working hard to support and engage teachers and students in schools across Greater Vancouver. Some highlights include:
Science World Teen Tuesday events – for these events Science World restricts access to high school students and teachers. We are delighted to have been invited back for a second year, and will be attending events in 2017.
BC Teachers’ Federation New Teachers’ Conference – we were accepted for a workshop at the 2016 and 2017 conferences, and will be applying to be part of the conference again in 2018.
BC Science Teachers’ Association Catalyst Convention – we were invited to attend last year’s Catalyst Conference, and we ran an exhibit booth for the event. We had over 2 pages of sign ups for either information sessions or guest classes! We are delighted to have been accepted to be part of the 2017 conference in August.
Surrey Teachers’ Association Convention – we attended the 2016 and 2017 Conventions and will be hopefully be back next year with an exhibitor booth and workshop for teachers.
Handsworth Secondary Be Aware Fair – the wonderful students at Handsworth Secondary School in North Vancouver put together a great event in 2016 that we were invited to be a part of. We had the chance to speak to students and teachers at the school and demo some non-animal methods for science education.
Argyle Secondary Sustainability Fair – an amazing student group at Argyle Secondary School in North Vancouver curated an event in 2016 that we were invited to. We put up our exhibit booth and provide demonstrations of non-animal methods for science teaching.
