Explore Canada's Energy Future with this interactive dashboard.
To dive deeper into machine learning and A.I. concepts, check out the activities and resources on code.org
For more activities that explore green energy, check out these resources:
Eat a Rainbow: This activity has students identify and think about the variety of fruits & vegetables they eat.
Contamination Station: In this activity, students explore how germs spread and how effective handwashing can prevent illness. (Glo Germ supplies needed)
Yeast-inflated balloons: Gut bacteria often produce gasses. This activity demonstrates another microorganism often found on our bodies and environments, and the gas it produces. You could discuss differences between fungal and bacterial microorganisms.
Poop Factory: This physical game explores the digestive system.
What is a Biome?: Students classify BC biomes (according to the Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification system) by amount & type of precipitation.
Plant Classification: This activity guides students to classify plants based on observed characteristics.
Food Web Tag: This game explores how living things (classified by feeding relationships) interact.
Niche and Habitat: In this activity, students classify coastal temperate rainforest animals based on their niche and habitat.
Map Your Fruit: This activity is a great introduction to transportation energy usage and how it can be reduced.
Grid Coding: This activity introduces some coding concepts as an unplugged (no screens) challenge that incorporates physical movement.
Continue On Your Adventure: Ken Spencer Science Park: Transportation Exhibit
Will it Wilt?: In this activity, students examine the differences between two similar plants when one plant is deprived of the power of sunlight.
Flower Dissection: In this activity, students will observe the parts of a flower and learn how each part is involved in helping a plant continue its growth for another generation.
