The Science Education Leaders of Ontario is a group of science leaders dedicated to supporting teachers and students in science (and technology) education. We meet semi-annually to share our best new learning, build leadership capacity, and advocate for resources that improve student learning and achievement across the province.

As a member of SELO/LESO, your school board will be included in a network of experts and talented science (and technology) practitioners from across the province; be eligible to participate within the organization as a decision maker and provided with access to diverse Science resources. For examples of the exemplary work SELO/LESO members have done in furthering leadership in Science (and Technology) education, please see the innovative projects that were completed over the last few years at Ministry Projects (https://goo.gl/yWL8XS).
