Space Agency Partnership
Calgary Board of Education and the Canadian Space Agency have agreed to
undertake a partnership and the Science School will be the site for a
number of activities which will support student and teacher learning.
- To support
the Space Agency with the design and testing of their learning programs.
- To lever
Agency learning programs (e.g. distance learning) to bring Canadian
space content and expertise into the classroom
- To engage
in Canadian space-focussed learning projects
- To refer
to Agency scientists and engineers for expert input in those instances
in the Calgary Board of Education students engage in space-related projects,
events and/or content development.
A most important
part of this agreement is also to provide a link to the Agency’s
website to facilitate information acquisition by students and educators
within the CBE. A wealth of information about the Canadian Space Agency
can be located at www.space.gc.ca
Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area
2006, the Science School and the Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area
signed a partnership agreement that will bring benefits to both organizations.
From the Science School perspective, teachers and students will be able
to continue with long term field study at this important conservation
site. The Cross Conservation Area is considered to be one of our
important rural land use study sites and students of all ages will engage
in study of this unique space over time. The Science School
teachers will offer educational expertise to the program developers at
the Cross Conservation area and use of our school site for special programs.
We look forward to participating in the important work of the Cross Conservation
Area over the coming years.

of Calgary - Prince's Island (Adopt-A-Park)
the fall of 2004, students at the Science School have enjoyed a wide variety
of learning opportunities at Prince's Island Park. We have adopted
Prince's Island through the City of Calgary Adopt-A-Park Program.
The Island is an important urban field study site and offers a multitude
of opportunities for learning and stewardship. Students have done
water quality studies, wildlife observation, land use inquiry and orienteering,
to highlight just a few activities. In addition, the Science School
has been involved with a long-term planting and natural reclamation project
located on the east end of the island. This naturalization initiative
will continue each spring and students will be able to see their willows,
wild roses and other native plant species grow over the years.
World of Science
Science School and the Telus World of Science have worked together since
the Program was envisioned. We have agreed to continue to support each
other's work in a number of ways. We will:
professional learning opportunities for teachers together and share
our facilities when it is appropriate to do so.
any exhibits from the Telus World of Science which are in need of a
home and can be accommodated within the spaces at our school.
each other's programs to the public. (i.e., camps at the Science Center,
contests, special events). More information about the Calgary Science
Center can be located at: www.calgaryscience.ca/
