Saskatchewan River Delta

This video program examines the Saskatchewan River Delta. Plants, animals, birds and insects call this ecosystem home. First Nations and Métis people use the delta for their livelihood. Scientists from around the world study the delta as it is the world's largest inland freshwater delta. The buil...

Métis Art and Stories in the Classroom with Leah Marie Dorion. Grades 1 & 2

Series: LIVE Arts
Why were bison essential to people living on the plains, prior to the time of Treaty negotiations (1870s)? What does the bison represent today? This LIVE Arts broadcast features contemporary artwork and storytelling by Métis artist Leah Marie Dorion, based on her children's book, "Métis Camp Circ...

Innovation Nation Episode 3. Bio Fuel

Will we be able to grow all of our fuel in the future? Along with exploring bold new ways of harvesting energy from bio-mass, Innovation Nation uncovers an amazing bio-fuel jet truck, a record breaking flying machine and a unique car made almost entirely of organic matter.

Innovation Nation Episode 2. Wind Power

Can the wind provide us with all of our power? Along with cutting-edge wind farms and new turbine designs, Innovation Nation meets inventor Doug Selsam as he builds the world's first flying turbine.

Innovation Nation Episode 1. CO2

Can we stop, or even reverse global warming? Innovation Nation follows the work of a Nobel Prize-winning scientist on the Canadian prairies, an innovator in New York who has designed a unique synthetic tree, and a mega-project in Europe where CO2, instead of being sent skyward, is stored far out ...

Pattern Recognition: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of pattern recognition.

Abstraction: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of abstraction.

Abstraction reduces how hard a problem or task is by focusing on what's important. We do that by deciding what the important information is and then removing all the unnecessary details....
