Abstract:

There is a growing demand for interdisciplinary thinking and an education that is integrated rather than compartmentalized. UBC’s Science One is an interdisciplinary space that facilitates students forming connections between disciplines. We are developing classroom experiences that teach students tools for scientific understanding, which are constant across the sciences.
