The Science of Coastal BC — Grade 2 & 3

Science AL!VE’s Virtual Junior Saturday Club will “travel” down the BC coast as they learn about various ocean science topics. Each week, knowledge will build from the previous weeks as students “travel” closer to Vancouver. The end goal is that the students will be able to relate concepts learned such as climate change and seismology back to the natural environment in their communities.

Learning outcomes include:

  • Understanding what is meant by density, apply the concept of density to floating and sinking.
  • Distinguishing between and describe the characteristics of humpback whales, fin whales, and orcas.
  • Defining biodiversity.
  • Explaining the salmon life cycle
  • Understanding that the earth is made of layers and that the crust is underlain with tectonic plates.
  • Describing tsunamis and list causes of tsunamis.
  • Describing climate change and its effects on oceans and marine life.

All activities are subject to change without notice.

Unlocking the Universe — Grade 4 & 5

Science AL!VE’s Virtual Senior Saturday Club will explore science concepts applicable to the real world, and universe at large. Participants will partake in “maker spaces” where they will pull together multiple concepts from lessons and apply them to the construction of projects. 

Learning outcomes include:

  • Determining the difference between solids, liquids, and gases.
  • Describing the structure and function of DNA.
  • Explaining from where electricity comes and how we use it.
  • Identifying and define different types of simple machines.
  • Recognizing the importance of radiation sciences, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering in space travel.
