Students will conduct a simulation to demonstrate control of several variables in the ecosystem, where different scenarios will be used to demonstrate the positive and negative effects humans have on local ecosystems.
Students will learn about the habitat and lifecycle of Pacific salmon, the effects of climate change on salmon populations and the importance of sustainable fishing practices.
In this workshop, students examine current and potential energy sources used for transportation, learn about fuel cell cars, explore the various types of fuels used in transportation and design their own vehicle.
In this workshop, students will explore what makes up a healthy forest, and how tree and soil health is important for sustaining ecosystems. Students will consider how human actions affect forests, and how forests are important in combatting climate change. Discussions will focus on positive actionable steps students can take to protect plant and soil health in their communities.
Extreme weather occurs in many wild ways, which is affected by climate change! This workshop explores these implications.
Many environmental factors can impact plant growth, and as a farmer, you will have to look for genetic modifications that can help you grow the best crop this year!
Students design and build a structure that protects toy people from a hurricane.
Discover the impacts of ocean acidification by observing the effect of acidity on shellfish.
Students will analyze historical, long-term trends in climate and explore environmental process through hands-on activities to gain an understanding of weather and climate in Northern Canada and relate to their own experiences with local weather patterns to discuss the changing climate in the north.
Students will learn about the importance of food webs and how climate change can disrupt them.
Students are introduced to form and function of structures and then build a bridge given certain limitations.
Students will get to learn about what a structure is and what materials can be used to build a strong and stable bridge.
Students build a beaver dam and lodge to understand what stable structures are and then they test their structure by placing a load on it - something heavy like a brick - and see if the force will make the structure collapse.
