The Earth Rangers is the kids conservation organization, committed to instilling environmental knowledge, positivity and the confidence to take action among every child in Canada. Programs show children that it’s not too late to help the planet and the things they do today will matter in the future.

Students have also been studying the robotics and automation modules of the practical and applied arts course. As part of this course, students learn the basics of coding and experiment with block coding using digital software. 

Information-technology consultant Grant Taylor was approached to see what technologies he could bring into the classroom to allow the students an opportunity to try them out first-hand. On his first visit, the students had an opportunity to explore with Microbits and learn about Ozobots. 

Using the Microbits, the students built their own interactive devices. Spheros are programmable robots that allow students to create using coding. The students enjoyed programming their Spheros to navigate a racecourse.
