Land Based STEM

This workshop will explore how you can incorporate land based learning in your science curriculum. In this session, we will share our experiences from running land-based camps and day camps in rural and Indigenous communities. You will leave this session with activity ideas and inspiration on how to connect science and engineering with outdoor activities.This session will be presented by members of our team who have experience working in remote BC communities teaching primarily Indigenous students. Potential hands-on activities during this workshop include building a cardboard canoe and building a chair with natural materials. This session connects to the science curriculum, Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum, and social studies curriculum.

Target Audience

Although we think all teacher's can benefit from this session, the activities being presented are most appropriate for grades 3 - 7 teachers.
