BGI staff work with researchers, university faculty, professional societies, and community organizations to develop Research Outreach Projects and teaching resources that provide access to current research.
Schoolyard Ecosystem Connections
Schoolyard Ecosystems is a teaching resource developed in partnership with the Calgary Catholic Schools and funding from The Calgary Foundation. The files provides access to planning templates, lesson plans, teaching guide, and resources that use the schoolyard ecosystem as the focal point for implementing the Alberta Program of Studies for Science 7 (Alberta Learning 2001).
BGI worked collaboratively with The Galileo Educational Network to create this video, which gives an example of a high school inquiry-based ecology field trip.
