December (Click on Session Title for short description)  

Do you do research on the endocrine system? Are you familiar with common disorders/diseases that happen when part of your endocrine system fails? Are there any breakthroughs you hope to see in the next 5-10 years related to either understanding the endocrine system or treating patients?

Come and see how Art is changing the world! Hear from young artists who are using their Art to topple governments, revolutionize popular culture and change the world we live in. Inspire your students to see Art as more than just something “pretty.” This event will take us from the Middle East to America and leave your students wanting something more.

  • International Human Right Day (Dec 10, 9:00-10:10MT/11:00-12:10ET)** – Gr 9-12

Come and celebrate International Human Right day by connecting with UNESCO and Equitas, International Centre for Human Rights Education, to talk about the changing and evolving world of Human Rights. Students will spend the hour debating and sharing about the varying manifestations of Human Rights locally and globally.

Through listening to survivors of the Residential Schools, this video conference will give students as well as teachers a better perspective on their history in Canada. We will be exploring the cause and reasons for the creation of residential schools, the effects the schools have had on the lives of First Nations people today, we will examine the methods of healing and coping amongst First Nations people.

Listen as students from all over the world share their vision for the future of Climate Change action in their national context. This is the second part of the Dec 2 event. All interactive spots have been filled but schools are welcome to observe.

See you all soon!
