We are delighted that you have joined us for the first ever I-Think and Science Centre collaboration. We have joined together because we know that science is fundamental to how we should be making decisions and creating innovation in society. We wanted to use student passion in service of making their community better. Integrative Thinking will give them the framework and mindset to do this.

As you go on this learning journey with your students, our teams are here to support you. Have fun!

Below are all the resources that you will need to engage in this learning with your students.
