Skunkworks has launched a new identity and website for The Scientist in Residence Program, a BC-based non-profit whose mission is to excite, inspire and support elementary school children and teachers to discover the world through hands-on science. This program is based on the partnerships that develop between teachers and scientists, and their sharing of knowledge and passion for both teaching and science. Two teachers and a scientist in residence work together at local schools to develop and deliver science units comprised of hands-on lessons on specific themes. There is a major focus on the experimental process of science. The lesson plans fit the BC Ministry of Education guidelines for Science K to 7.
We were inspired by the great cause and partnered with the Scientist in Residence Program executive to redesign the brand and corporate identity (business-cards, letterheads, PowerPoint templates, labels) and create a new WordPress-based website.
The key element of the new site is a series of 176 (and counting) science lesson plans and worksheets freely available for use by other educators.
We are proud to be a sponsor for the Scientist in Residence Program and look forward to seeing this unique educational initiative continue to grow in the future.
