Teaching about the environment, climate change, and energy while helping students understand what they can do, is so important - but it can be challenging in Alberta, where attitudes towards these topics are mixed. We can help! We've researched how to best engage students in environmental learning, and how teachers can 'go there' without incurring the skepticism of administrators or the wrath of parents! To support teachers we have developed workshops, a program called Connecting Classrooms, and partnered with GreenLearning Canada to bring you Energy Revealed.
