About the Program
This program will be an introduction to how science is a part of everyday life. Beginning with introducing the atmosphere, playing a game to identify what is in our air and what it does for us. Moving to the connection with how trees and plants create oxygen for us we will then take a walk in the forest, beginning with a treasure hunt (survey) of species, how to identify different species and how they all live together as part of an ecosystem including the earth and soil (soil stratigraphy) and water, and why this part of BC is so unique. This then will lead us to move from the Geosphere (Hard part of Earth) to the Hydrosphere (Water) and how these Earth systems are interconnected. We will take a walk to the river and talk about the hydrological cycle, how water is transported around the Earth, how it is stored (looking at glaciers, groundwater) and why it is so important for life to flourish.

"Both Alex and Jade were very knowledgeable and very good with the kids. Their energy and stoke for science was infectious. " - Megan Bouvette
"Jade was fantastic. She was well prepared, and had great classroom management. She engaged the kids with interactive activities, and provided a great blend of calm, listening activities and energetic 'get up and move' games." - Rosalie Ball
"I thought Jade was exceptionally kind, thoughtful, responsive and positive. I had a few students in my group who were very tired from the previous soccer tournament the previous weekend and our two day bike ride/camp trip just before that. Some of them were just done with the year but Jade maintained her positive stance and didn't get discouraged. She encouraged the engaged ones and gave alternatives to the strugglers. She was AWESOME and incredibly knowledgeable about natural sciences (and teaching strategies). I would love to have Jade as a presenter in the future." - Donna Hicks
"Jade was great at being flexible and adaptable to my small group of diverse learners. Her energy and enthusiasm was appreciated, especially during this time of year." - Erika Momeyer
"What an enjoyable morning. Jade was able to read my students as a class very well. She switched up activities as needed to maintain their peak interest and curiosity. " - Anita Vibe
"Jade is an excellent outdoor teacher." - Colleen Wall
