    A group of organizations across Canada including ScienceUpFirst, Children’s Healthcare Canada, and the Sandbox Project have joined forces to declare Thursday, January 27 as National Kids and Vaccines Day.

     

    We invite all CASC Members to participate in the day's events through their own efforts, and by promoting the programs and resources currently being planned using the #KidsVaccinesDay hashtag.

    This day will bring together industry, influencers and experts from across disciplines to help move the needle (pun intended) and promote vaccine confidence to protect our largest unvaccinated cohort of Canadians.

    Indigenous youth across Northern Ontario have been learning more about STEM concepts through health sciences programming developed in partnership between Science North and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM). Working to further build relationships with Indigenous communities in the North, the organizations are empowering Indigenous youth to achieve their learning goals and promote the careers in health care.

    A fun and informative session was held on November 1, 2021, to highlight the partnership with rural, remote and Indigenous Northern communities. The educational programming delivers health sciences related content focusing on health, human sciences, and wellbeing. “This partnership contributes to our strategic goal of deepening our engagement with Indigenous audiences and being Science North in all of Northern Ontario,” says Ryan Land, Director of Education and Northern Programs at Science North.

    During the spring of 2021, the team provided 15 schools with Science Day programming, with over 350 youth participants. Programming was completed virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. Students were able to participate in synchronous learning opportunities through various online platforms. Students in communities with limited internet connectivity were also able to participate in asynchronous learning sessions with recorded video.

    Today, University of Ottawa and Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation – announced a partnership that brings an interactive and educational digital experience to Kanata North. Innovating beyond the walls of its museums, Ingenium has created iOS and Nintendo Switch games to make learning fun. On site at the University’s Kanata North campus at 535 Legget Drive, visitors can now experience what it is like to fly like a honeybee, go on a mission to Mars, or test their skills as a fighter pilot in WWI.

    “The University’s partnership with Ingenium has been a long and productive one, anchored by a common mandate to promote science education and to create environments that foster science and technology innovation,” said Veronica Farmer, Director, Partnerships and Commercialization at uOttawa Kanata North. “The digital games installation reflects this intent and definitely brings an element of fun to our Kanata North campus.”

    Radiocarbon dating suggests Indigenous people have occupied this territory for at least 9,000-10,600 years.  

    In 1952, renowned archaeologist Charles Borden remarked that the Interior Plateau of Northern British Columbia is archaeologically one of the least known regions in North America. This remains just as true today.

    Until 2012, the occupation of the Interior Plateau of Northern British Columbia, specifically that of Prince George, was thought to have only been in the last 4,000 years.

    Located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, it was in 2012 when an archaeological site of significant cultural and scientific significance was partially excavated. Scientifically dated evidence from this excavation proved occupation 5,000 years before what researchers previously thought.

    It is well-established that when messages are paired with creative forms of expression, the results are more memorable, more shareable, and can reach new audiences.

    So… we’re launching an exciting art project! Last month, we commissioned 13 artists from across the country to create beautiful pieces that interpret principles of good communication. They’ve been hard at work and we’re thrilled to start sharing their work.

    Meet the amazingly talented artists from across Canada.

    And check our social media channels every Thursday for a new piece of art!
