Fostering Faith and Supporting STEM: An Educator Workshop on Science & Religion
Museum of Science
Intended for Informal and Formal Educators Teaching Grades 6 – 12 and above
“If there seems to be a conflict between beliefs and facts, it is the job of all of us as educators to help students understand religious beliefs are rooted in faith while science is rooted in what we know today.” – Sister Buffy Marie Boesen, Angels Among Us
In a day-long workshop inspired by the short story “Angels Among Us” by Lisa Y. Garibay, participants will hear from a panel of local professionals who have devoted their lives to both science and faith, then work together to create a collection of best practices, tools, and resources on teaching and discussing science in a faith-based environment.
Join in a discussion with local educators and reflect on how the interaction of science and religion has affected your life and the lives of students, develop an accessible network of diverse educators, and be inspired to continue the conversation with your students in creative and engaging ways.
Light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Certificate of participation available upon request.
In partnership with: Think Write Publish–Science & Religion and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at Arizona State University.
