Last week was Science Literacy Week, a week-long celebration of science and space in Canada. This year, SLW partnered up with the Space Agency to highlight the exploration of the cosmos. Here in Haida Gwaii, we thought we would share our knowledge of how birds have inspired us in this exploration. For this occasion, we visited various classrooms and facilitated activities that helped students learn about how birds fly. We also gave a great presentation at our new office in Skidegate on flight and predation patterns.
