Panel Organized by: Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation / Ingenium – Musée des sciences et de la technologie du Canada

We are all born with a natural instinct to learn and explore. Self-led and experiential learning are powerful tools for education, as they promote personal reflection and a deeper connection with the world. Panelists will explore programs which design fun, immersive opportunities for young people to enjoy learning by doing. How can we scaffold self-directed learning to encourage the development of skills that young people will need in the future? And how can these approaches to learning empower the youth of today to tackle the biggest challenges in the world, such as climate change, food security and space exploration?
