Get in on a fantastic science experience this year by registering a group of students for a station-based, hands-on learning day led by experts in areas important to our environment such as clean water, healthy soil and climate change. Students will be able to try out scientific equipment and get informed and inspired towards careers in environmental science, biology and more.
Dig It! Skills in Soil Science is a free science experience for students Grades 9-12.
Dig It! is a great way to learn more about soil science and sustainable agriculture in Manitoba.
Get together with the experts from Manitoba Agriculture to sample soil, complete soil chemistry tests, classify soils by texture, take in the Great Rain and Snow Show, and more.
Dig It! Day has been cancelled due to COVID-19 disruptions. We are now planning to incorporate agriculture into our September Freshwater Ecology Day.
Arctic Science Day is a free science experience for Grades 6 to 12 students.
Arctic Science Day connects your students with scientists who are researching the impacts of climate change on ecosystems and human communities in Canada's Arctic.
Warning: Arctic Science Day MAY inspire your students towards careers in environmental sciences.
Arctic Science Day is made possible through the in-kind donation of time, equipment and skills from research scientists and graduate students from the University of Manitoba: Centre for Earth Observation Sciences, ArcticNet and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
