The focus of the day: Science & Catholic Faith: Points of Integration
Catholic high schools increase their positive impact on students when religion is integrated across the curriculum. The Institute Day presenters are experts in making the important connections between religion and science. In the workshop presentations, participants learn more about Catholic teachings and themes as they relate to science. Participants will also come to understand how many topics usually covered in high school science intersect with larger issues relating to Catholic belief and practice. During breakout sessions, teachers will discuss and develop strategies for implementing the dialogue between science and religion into their curriculum and teaching.
