CANDAC (Canadian Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Change) researchers have teamed up with students and staff at schools in Ontario and Nunavut to launch a new project that encourages young people to become active researchers who monitor atmospheric conditions using scientific instruments at their school. Researchers and students work together to gather, compare and analyse data to better understand the current state of Earth's dynamic atmosphere.
Ashley, Felicia, Keven, and Xiaoyi visited Pickering College on Thursday, February 9th to launch the Student-Researchers Atmospheric Collaboration. We were excited to visit Pickering College because we knew that we would see many familiar faces from last year's project. Students demonstrated a great understanding of the science of weather, and shared their thoughts about where to make the best weather observations. This year, students are particularly excited about partnering with students at Nakasuk School in Iqaluit to share and discuss their findings. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Pickering College this year!!
