Focus on Coding and Numeracy: Grades 4-6

In this broadcast students work on two unplugged activities aimed at developing their numeracy and computational thinking skills. In the first activity, students are required to use their algorithmic thinking, decomposition and logic skills to create an algorithm for a variety of cup-stacking cha...

Grasslands

This video examines the North American grasslands as a natural habitat. It explores the plant and animal species in this ecosystem and considers the livelihood of the area from the perspectives of conservationists, First Nations and ranchers. A good portion of this video was filmed in Saskatchewan.

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 ...

Project X. Flight

The Project X team explores the physics of flight. The video program examines machines, such as a hang glider, to illustrate the principles of flight. Also, how a human body, such as an alpine ski jumper, must be streamlined to increase drag and how ski jumpers spread themselves out to optimize l...

Fall Comes to Lac La Ronge

Fall Comes to Lac La Ronge is a 15 minute video produced by Randy Johns and Richard Frisky for KCDC. It details the cycle of the seasons as they slowly transform from the glory of summer to the splendour of fall. How various life forms prepare for fall is highlighted, including the migration patt...

Soldiers Return Home. Episode 7

In the video, Reg Harrison, a boy from the prairies, shares his personal story of challenges, risks and dangers faced while serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a pilot with the Bomber Command during the Second World War.

HMCS Regina. Episode 3

In the video, Donald MacIntosh, veteran and survivor of the HMCS Regina sinking, explores the role the Canadian Navy played in the Second World War and that of the corvettes in protecting convoys while experiencing great personal risks.

The Science of Flight. Part 5

This video introduces students to the science of flight and aerodynamics. Students will learn about lift, gravity, thrust and drag -- the four forces that make it possible for an airplane to fly. Professor Peter Plankton and Professor Tess Tube examine Bernoulli's Principle, Newton's Third Law of...

Forces Acting on Structures. Part 3

Professor Peter Plankton and Professor Tess Tube examine forces on structures. They specifically look at the impact of earthquakes and tornadoes. Footage from the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan shows the devastating impact of these natural forces. Students will learn the difference betwee...

Structures. Part 2. Quiz

This short video is a question and answer quiz on the content found in the video, Structures: Man-made and Found in Nature. Part 2 (N1262).
