Win a class trip to your local science centre with GenAction!* 

GenAction is a national community of young climate heroes from K-12. Together we are on a mission to inspire youth to take climate action. 

To win the contest, educators are invited to submit video with your class that answers the question, "What does Climate Action mean to you?" Videos can be anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Bonus points for creativity like drawings, acting, poems, or demonstrating a climate action! 

In addition to entering the contest, the most engaging videos could be showcased nationally during our GenAction Earth Day 2024 campaign (with your permission of course). 

So, what does climate action mean to you? We can’t wait to find out! 

Science Spotlights

Science Literacy Week (September 18 - 24) is a week to showcase the many ways people can explore the diversity of Canadian Science. Science centres from across Canada, along with schools, libraries, and non-for-profits come together to highlight exciting stories, discoveries, and ingenuity shaping our lives. This year's theme is E for Energy!


Explore FREE bilingual Energy-Focused Canadian Science Spotlights that these science centres have developed, with activities to try in the classroom or at home.
