STEM Kids of 2017/2018
Each month this school year we will introduce you to two remarkable young people. These kids have experienced our renewable energy programs first-hand. Read their stories below.
Meet Amina and Derek, students at a school in Calgary, Alberta. Their class participated in our Grade 5 Concentrate on Conservation workshop.
We talked with them about science and energy in our everyday lives.
Derek thinks it’s important to use clean energy resources. “…because when making power, depending on what we use like coal factories or nuclear plants those could create a lot of radiation or pollution.”
Amina reflected on the importance of scientists. “If you think about it, scientists have made mostly everything we use and slowly developed in our daily lives. It’s one of the most important jobs in the world.”
You can help kids, like Amina and Derek, learn about important energy issues.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It is a term used in education and curriculum choices in schools. All of our programs link to STEM topics and the educational curriculum.
