Summer Institute 2014

The School of Education, in collaboration with Open Acadia, offers intensive three-week Summer Institutes in July at Acadia each year designed to meet the professional development needs of educators. Courses are scheduled over 12-15 days of intensive study, with morning and afternoon slots that allow many students to take two courses simultaneously. For 2014, the Summer Institute of courses runs from July 3-18th.

The Summer Institute also includes a Summer Conference Day featuring keynote speakers and workshops. This summer's Conference Day, built around the theme of Creative Professionalism, is scheduled for campus on Friday, July 4th, 2014

Huggins High School Science Seminar - May 2

Aspiring scientists from across the Maritimes joined us on Friday, May 2nd for the 29th Annual Huggins High School Science Seminar.

The Huggins seminar offers a unique opportunity to learn from—and interact with—real scientists who work on interesting projects on an everyday basis.

This year's seminar included four keynotes on the topics of drinking water, scientific bias, geological expeditions, and electron microscopy. And, our fun, contentious professorial showdown returned as the Desert Island Debate, and the day rounded with an always fun chemistry show.
