About this Event

Description

In the summer of 2020, our backyards are more important than ever before. But did you know that your backyard holds a wealth of science just waiting to be explored? Let us unlock the mysteries and clues your yard holds with Green Calgary’s Backyard Science program for youths and families.

Scientists who study the effects of environment on species cannot be everywhere and cannot witness everything. That’s where you come in. We will teach you how to collect data about biodiversity, how to analyze it and how to share it with world renowned scientists so they can use your findings.

Our Backyard Science program for families is the Family Camp and it will focus on the theme of Team Challenges. There is a whole world out there, right in your own backyard! Discover it with a sibling, a parent, or the whole family!

Our summer camp pack will include a downloadable activity pack for kids, parents’ guide, videos to watch to introduce activities, and the opportunity to join several live video sessions throughout the week so kids can feel connected to others. Students will have access to fun, hands-on activities, crafts and games which can be enjoyed independently or as a family. Grade ranges are guidelines only and every camp has its own theme with different activities!
