Once the expedition begins, there will be weekly live broadcasts dedicated to a school, youth and education-based audience. Broadcasts will include a range of topics and interactive opportunities including: interviews with Canada C3 participants; research observations from participating scientists; conversations between Canadians and events in coastal communities during expedition stops; interviews and exchanges with notable expedition participants; Virtual Field Trips to National Parks and other protected areas (i.e., Marine Protected Areas, Migratory Bird Sanctuaries, etc). Regardless of your specific curriculum, subject area(s) or learning priorities, connecting with this historic pan-Canadian initiative will help bring learning to life. Students, teachers and the general public will be able to submit questions that will be incorporated into the live broadcasts. A weekly broadcast schedule will be posted here closer to the start of the expedition. Stay tuned!
Beyond the weekly live broadcasts there will also be several ‘live-learning events’ that will take place throughout the Canada C3 expedition; approximately one per month. Through a network of partners and collaborators, thousands of students/youth, teachers and everyday Canadians will be able to participate in these events from their classroom, home, summer camp, at regional museums, at national education sites and even at giant screen IMAX theatres.
One of our most exciting live-learning events will occur on Aug. 27 in Cambridge Bay, NU. Ocean educators with the Fish Eye Project, in partnership with Ocean Networks Canada, Vancouver Aquarium and the University of Victoria, will be hosting a Canada C3 ‘Arctic live dive.’ You will be able to virtually dive underwater with this team in real time, see what the divers do, ask them questions while they are underwater and learn about the Arctic Ocean ecosystem firsthand!
Over the coming months we will be sharing more exciting live learning events! Stay tuned!
