Navigating Online Climate Data Sources

Thursday, February 27

11am-12pm Mountain / 10am – 11am Pacific

A free webinar about the various climate data sources available for the Columbia Basin and how to use them. This webinar will be useful for anyone who needs to use climate data to inform technical and/or policy analysis and decision making. Nelson-based climate scientist Mel Reasoner will provide a practical overview of the Columbia Basin Climate Source , the Climate Atlas of Canada and ClimateData.ca. He will discuss the key features of each, their commonalities and their unique data elements.

The Art and Science of Teaching Climate Change

Wednesday, April 1

5:30pm-6:30pm Mountain / 4:30-5:30 Pacific

Want to cover climate change in the classroom, but not sure where to start? You’re not alone. A recent NPR/Ipsos poll showed that less than half of K–12 educators surveyed tackle climate change in their classrooms. In this webinar, educators will learn strategies to communicate climate change principles that can be applied to any classroom. Through practical, inquiry-focused activities, teachers will gain tools to navigate one of the most important environmental issues of our generation.

The Joy of Garden-based Education

Wednesday, April 8

5:30pm-6:30pm Mountain / 4:30-5:30 Pacific

You will learn the fascinating science behind the social, psychological and physiological benefits of using gardens to teach. Besides, donning a big grin, students learn scientific concepts more effectively when performing hands-on investigations outside so their grades soar. Outdoor based education is a sure way to nurture global citizens for the stewardship of our planet.

Indigenous Arts and Sciences: Connecting STEM to Indigenous Science

Wednesday, April 29

5:30pm-6:30pm Mountain / 4:30-5:30 Pacific

Understanding and respectfully acknowledging the interrelationships of phenomena and events in the natural world in a reciprocal and respectful way; honoring those relationships is the basis of traditional ecological knowledge. Contemporary First Nations youths, and all young people, could benefit from understanding the natural world and their relationship with it. A deeply collaborative approach between tribal, university, and K–12 partners has the potential to invigorate Indigenous youths in science endeavors, make STEM more relevant to them (and their peers), as well as foster positive school cultures.
