Jerrold Wiebe and his students are purchasing five trail cameras and one time lapse camera in order to discover the environment around their school.  By using technology, they plan on using the trail cameras to create a digital trapline to further investigate the wildlife in their area and the time lapse camera to view changes in nature that are often unnoticed.

Youth 2 Youth

Jamie Leduc and his students are collaborating with groups of students from 2 other schools to teach each other 21st century skills while creating game-based web (and android) app.  Students are developing an international sustainable development arcade-based game/app.  Students involved are from Winnipeg, Kampala (Uganda) and Philadelphia (USA).  Students are using Facebook, Skype, Stencyl and the Adobe Master Collection to create the game.  To learn more about this project, please visit the Y Squared group page on Facebook.
