Project launch at Nakasuk School!

Ashley, Camille, and Zen visited Nakasuk School from Monday, February 20th to Wednesday, February 21st to launch the Student-Researchers Atmospheric Collaboration with students in grades 1, 2, and 3. Nakasuk students were very interested in the hands-on demonstrations and used scientific methodology to explain different concepts. Grade 1 and 2 students learned how to make temperature measurements using a thermometer, and also got to build their own homemade thermometer in the classroom. Grade 3 students learned how wind is formed and will be using an anemometer, windsock, and compass to make wind speed and wind direction measurements. Students will be monitoring the weather in Iqaluit and sharing their observations with CANDAC scientists and students at other participating schools via an online project database. We are looking forward to collaborating with Nakasuk this year!!
