Better Teaching. Better Learning. A Better Tomorrow.
Climate Action 150 gives students a voice in creating a low-carbon and prosperous Canada — a legitimate, critical and informed voice. It engages them in authentic learning and inquiry, starting in their communities. They collaborate with experts and mentors. In a culminating Virtual Town Hall, they present and engage in dialogue with the Government of Canada. Throughout and beyond the project, students take action — in their daily lives, at school and in their community while challenging others to act.
Teachers may register their classes for the Solar Oven Challenge by May 26, 2017 for a chance to win a class prize. In the Solar Oven Challenge, students are invited to use our detailed construction plans to build working models of a solar oven. It is designed to teach students about solar heat, solar electricity and other clean energy technologies, but can be modified to incorporate culinary arts, food safety and culture. You may use the solar oven construction plan provided at re-energy.ca, or your students can design their own plans. As students explore renewable energy hands-on, they can expect to:
- Discover the fundamental principles of biology, chemistry and physics,
- See the application of science and technology to some of today’s most important environmental issues,
- Enjoy the challenge of building working models of a solar oven.

“I would highly recommend GreenLearning resources to any school district! They not only support the various curriculum areas (e.g. Language Arts, Social Studies, Science), but also can help districts establish networking groups around sustainability issues.”
ROSALIND POON, TEACHER CONSULTANT,
RICHMOND SCHOOL DISTRICT BC
“I greatly value the contribution GreenLearning makes to environmental education across the province.”
RON BALLENTINE, ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION COORDINATOR,
HALTON DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD
“It [Electricity All Around Us] was well thought out, likely made by actual teachers. Online activities really engaged the students, many of whom said that they never knew that ‘learning science could be so fun.'”
SEAN SOMMERFELD, GRADE 6/7 TEACHER,
FORT CHIPEWYAN, ALBERTA
