How far in to your day this morning did you have your first interaction with water? What were the steps you took to have access to it? How much water have you used or consumed today? Did you use electricity or transportation today?
Water is vital to life. We are here because of it. In fact, it makes up 57-60% of the average human body. We’d like to challenge Canadians to pause, reflect and learn more about the role water plays in our individual lives, our communities, Canada – and even the world.
As you familiarize yourself with digital tools and programming languages throughout the month of March, we would like for you to explore various topics about this vital resource of ours. Anything goes. We’ll leave this up to you – but thinking about awareness, sustainability, access and quality might be a great starting point.
Hey Teachers: we’d love for you to participate as well! Check out our teacher resources, select a lesson plan and challenge your students to create their projects around the theme. We love using “How might we….?” statements.
We will leave your digital project up to you – and welcome you to be as imaginative and inventive as you like! We encourage you to learn something new and expand your perspective!
Share photos, screenshots or videos of your digital projects you’ve started using the #clcCode4Change hashtag! We want to see what you end up creating. Remember that learning something new is a work-in-progress. We hope you continue to work on the project you’ve started with us – beyond the classroom!
