Outreach 2014

 

Welcome to the Student-Researchers

Atmospheric Collaboration!

 

 

 

CANDAC 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.

 

About the Program

Program Goals

 

  • Provide students the opportunity to collect scientific data on their local environment with a focus on the atmosphere.

 

  • Allow students to share their ideas and collaborate with other students and scientists through the Internet and telecommunications.

 

  • Promote dialogue about and understanding of atmospheric science and its contributions to global environmental issues.
