Gordon Gore is one of BC’s most innovative and respected science teachers. For forty years, Gordon passed on his lifelong love of science to students and teachers alike with his ‘hands-on, minds-on’ approach to making science fun to learn and to do. Writing books, leading workshops and giving presentations were his way to engage teachers and students that science learning can be fun. But it is the development of the BIG Little Science Centre at Kamloops that is his lasting legacy. The Centre houses Gordon’s enormous variety of science toys and equipment to demonstrate scientific principles. To date, over 20,000 children and adults have seen firsthand the joy of science thanks to Gordon Gore.
