EMEND Project: Sustainable Forestry Teacher Resource Kit

Description: 

This series of 360 video tours and interactive 360 photos teaches about the environmental and social contexts of science and how companies are making their harvest more sustainable using the research from the EMEND site located near Peace River AB. The immersive video experiences on this webpage provide a concrete example and interactive investigation that teachers can use to teach the following essential understandings:

  • Investigating the interactions of the physical world facilitates understandings that can be a basis for discovery and innovation.
  • Examining the nature of science and scientific inquiry can help us appreciate the development of knowledge about the natural world.
  • How can engaging in scientific inquiry enable us to produce evidence to support explanations of scientific phenomena?

Resource topic: 

“Schools should prepare us for the future, not the past. The future of the world will be built on sustainability. If we learn what sustainable technologies are available when we are in school, we will be able to help shape the future of global sustainability when we graduate.” 

- Quinn, student at Jasper Place high school in Edmonton
