What’s Hiding in our Air? is a 60-minute presentation for Grades 1-6 with an outdoor component. Using high-tech tools that measure air quality around your school, this presentation will engage children in fun, science-based discussions on ways to improve our air with more emissions-free travel including cycling and walking.

“They can never learn these things too early!”
“That’s the quietest my students have been in a long time!”

Eating Our Way to Brighter Skies explores the relationship between air quality and composting, inspiring students to find realistic ways that they can minimize food waste. A 45-minute presentation offered in Grades 1-6 classrooms, this presentation uses an interactive poster to foster critical thinking about our food cycle.

“I loved the interactive poster, so did the children!”
“It’s relevant to the curriculum as well as the ‘life choices’ we are teaching children…”

Food Waste: Local choices and global impacts is a 60-minute interdisciplinary presentation for Grades 7-12 that connects our local choices around organic waste disposal to the global impacts of climate change. Contemporary art is used as a medium to encourage youth to imagine alternatives for a more sustainable world.

“All the topics fit the grade 10 geography curriculum and grade 12 global issues outcomes.”
“They liked the integration of the artwork, and the prepared questions to help guide them in their note-taking.”
