BP A+ for Energy Educational Challenge

As a part of their course work in EDUC 3106: Teaching Elementary Science 3rd year Mount Royal Bachelor of Education students worked with elementary students on environmentally sustainable energy projects including insulation and heat sinks. This experience at the Tim Hortons Children’s Ranch helped to inform the creation of two cold frames and a greenhouse for the Ranch.

December 8, 2016 was an exciting evening for these Education students when they showcased these projects to a group of judges. Their reflective practice posters and presentations were judged upon features such as

·         Innovative approach to learning about science and energy issues

·         Integration of curriculum in a variety of subject areas

·         Evidence of reflective practice and impact upon teaching

·         Student learning and engagement

First place winners receive a monetary award and the opportunity to attend BP’s Alberta Teachers’ Conference; the second and third place winners receive a monetary award. Congratulations to the winning team including:

Kristen MacIsaac
Taylor Gierl
