Feedback from participants

We were in front of a screen A LOT this year, and this was a great way to get them outside, experience nature, and sharing what they found. Thank you for all of the work that went into organizing this program. It is TRULY appreciated!

The children were so engaged about the project that they went home and told their families, and those siblings approached their teachers asking if they could participate.

I definitely had some snap happy kids, loose in their neighborhoods! I was amazing by some of the amazing shots! Our connection with India was amazing! Thanks so much!

What a wild ride! We're having so much fun as a group of four classrooms that we decided to take #BackyardBio two weeks into June, and it's inspired me to connect with other friends and family to show my students into their gardens around the world. My students didn't just learn about biodiversity, either. We talked about time zones, distances, geography, temperatures, weather, and even what people eat!

As a completely virtual class, some of my students have only seen nature through a window this year, and so it's been incredible to watch as they connect and "see" more of the outside world.

I have personally started using Seek and iNaturalist in tandem and I love recognizing more of my local flora! I am proud to be able to participate in citizen science. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!

For some of my students who don't engage in much else, this was their favourite thing to do. It was also a manageable thing to do virtually, as it allowed me to encourage my students to get outside!

I had one student that made 62 observations. In a year that was so challenging it was so worth participating just seeing the enthusiasm of this one student.

BackyardBio est un événement présenté par Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants

Nous sommes un organisme sans but lucratif enregistré au Canada et aux États-Unis qui se consacre à inspirer la prochaine génération de scientifiques et d'explorateurs. Nous faisons cela en faisant vivre la science, l'exploration, la conservation et l'aventure dans les salles de classe partout grâce à des conférenciers virtuels et à des excursions sur le terrain. Depuis 2015, nous avons organisé près de 2000 événements en direct mettant en relation des centaines de milliers d'étudiants avec des scientifiques et des explorateurs de plus de 80 pays. Ce que nous faisons est et sera toujours gratuit pour les salles de classe partout.

Chaque mois, nous organisons plus de 40 événements en direct pour les salles de classe, abordant des thèmes tels que le changement climatique, le plastique océanique, la biodiversité, l'exploration spatiale, les femmes dans la science et l'exploration, la conservation et bien plus encore. Les salles de classe peuvent se joindre aux caméras et interagir directement avec les orateurs, tous les événements sont diffusés en direct sur YouTube et Facebook afin que n'importe quel nombre de salles de classe puisse se connecter et tous les événements sont enregistrés dans notre bibliothèque d'événements passés, accessible aux enseignants et aux étudiants à tout moment.
