TEACHER ALERT: If you are submitting your field trips budgets, please be advised that current pricing will be in effect for our 2018-19 ESO Education programs.

During this Inquiring Minds site-based classroom experience, students spend a full week at the Winspear Centre, exploring acoustics, music, and the science of sound through hands-on inquiry. You’ll work with our Program Coordinator to plan your week and we’ll provide resources to incorporate your Sound School learning throughout the school year.

What is Inquiring Minds?

Inquiring Minds offers an innovative approach to informal learning pioneered by Gillian Kydd and Don Harvie. Intriguing and enriching sites across Edmonton (such as museums, fire halls, civic venues and nature preserves) welcome classes of children to use their site as a classroom for an entire week. Students and teachers use this new ‘classroom’ to engage in learner-led, hands-on, inquiry-based learning and exploration through tours, journaling, and a host of creative activities. This model makes the stuff students learn in textbooks come alive, and has an incredible power to inspire students and teachers!
