Overview

Inside Education and Change for Climate Edmonton want to bring climate change awareness, mitigation, and adaptation education to your classrooms as a part of the City of Edmonton’s Climate Prepared Schools project!

Edmonton’s Climate Expo is a hands-on station-based program designed to introduce students to curriculum-linked climate and community stewardship topics.

We have climate monitoring tools, renewable energy demos, plant samples, and more! The Edmonton Climate Expo can accommodate multiple classes ranging from Grades 5-6 throughout one day. Ideally, we can set up in a spacious common area (i.e. gym, library, Learning Commons, etc.) and have each class come by for an hour. An Inside Education facilitator will set up the Expo and lead an engaging introduction, and groups of 3-4 students will circulate between the Expo stations. Each station features inquiry questions, hands-on components, and critical thinking! 

Please Note: This program is currently only available to schools within the City of Edmonton

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s M├ętis Peoples have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for stewardship of the environment, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
