Description
For over two decades, the Sanofi Biogenius Canada (SBC) program has nurtured young minds by challenging high school students to carry out groundbreaking research projects in the field of biotechnology. Grade 9-12 students apply in the fall to participate in the SBC program. Those selected for the SBC competition are matched with local mentors, giving students hands-on research experience in a professional lab setting. Participants compile their results and present their findings at regional competitions, vying for cash prizes and the chance to advance to the National and International Biogenius competitions. In past years, participant research projects ranged from cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, to agriculture and the environment. Many have since been patented and commercialized, garnering international media attention and igniting a true culture of innovation in Canada.

Description
Sky, Water, Earth is a collection of free, online, self-paced experiences that takes the form of a career preparation initiative for youths interested in the field of science. This is a year-long joint initiative between UBC Faculty of Education, the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, and the HR MacMillan Space Centre that runs from September 2017 to September 2018. The project guides youths to participate in learning playlists that help them build competencies outlined by the National Research Council Canada (NRC), some of which overlap with the BC Curriculum Core Competencies. Learners choose playlists they want to work on, each highlighting one or more of the NRC competencies for excellence in research - such as creative thinking, communication, teamwork, and more. Students complete competency-based activities through playlists, and earn points which can be redeemed for a variety of unique Real-World Opportunities curated to build success in their future careers.

Description
With animation, interactivity, and sound effects, Starting with Soil demonstrates how plants and animals cooperate to make the soil we need to grow healthy food. Kids learn that soil starts with bare rock and discover how long it takes nature to make one inch of topsoil. (Spoiler alert: it takes 500 years!) Different chapters convey the importance of pollinators and the critical roles animals, the weather, microorganisms, and cover crops play in organic farming. Designed for students ages 7-9, Starting with Soil allows users to plant seeds, build a compost pile, drag a microscope over different organisms in soil to get a better look, and view the symbiosis at work when corn, beans, and squash are planted together.

Description
Human activities can affect animals—and sometimes jeopardize species that are at risk. The way to protect animals is to teach our youngest students about different species, why they are important, and how our decisions impact them. IFAW's Animals & Us program offers classroom-ready resources suitable for students aged 6-10 that share those messages, while building essential skills in English, Science and Mathematics.
