This module addresses issues dealing with the energy from the sun, the energy needs of students in the classroom and, ultimately, our energy needs as a nation. 

Materials:

Handouts included; photovoltaic solar cells with attached resistor, 10 Ohm (prices range from $6-20); color filters (clear, red, green, blue, black), “Ray box color filter set”; five cardboard boxes (shoe boxes work well, students can donate from home); and five plants (any greenhouse, $2-3 per plant).

Solar PV Video (Gr 8-12)

An introduction showing how a PV panel converts the energy of the sun into renewable electricity to power homes and businesses.

 

Exploring By The Seat Of Your Pants aims to inspire the next generation of scientists, explorers and conservationists. We do this by bringing science, exploration, adventure and conservation into classrooms through virtual speakers and field trips with leading experts across the globe. Since starting in September 2015 we've run well over 1,000 live events and connected hundreds of thousands of students to scientists and explorers in over 60 countries. Best part of all, it is and always will be 100% free for classrooms everywhere! 

Each month during the school year we host 25+ Google Hangout events for classrooms. 
 

Pl@ntNet is an app to help to identify plants with pictures. It makes it very easy and fun to identify plant species anywhere in the world! 

The guide focuses specifically on how to help engage First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) youth to take action to create change on an issue they care about, and how to respectfully incorporate FNMI knowledge and culture into your classroom or program. The Action Process has been designed to utilize and honour FNMI ways of knowing. We believe that this is integral to the creation of sustainable communities.

Part One of this guide provides information to help you develop a respectful understanding of FNMI people, culture and knowledge. Much of the information presented in these sections is geared toward readers who are not First Nations, Métis or Inuit, but who work with students/youth who are FNMI. For this reason, some of the information in this section of the guide may not be of as much benefit to FNMI readers who may already have a better understanding of the concepts discussed.

Part Two of this guide will be of benefit to all readers as it provides a detailed overview of an action process as well as activities to support each step in the design and implementation of your action projects. This section also includes suggestions for ways to develop a respectful understanding of FNMI knowledge with your students/youth participants and ways to incorporate traditional FNMI knowledge into your action project.

Each week find updates about meaningful markers of the shift to renewable energy and the electrification & decarbonization of economies around the world. This includes solar, wind, energy storage, electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, grid evolution and smart cities.
