Virtual Field Trips/Live Streaming
Share your science from the field live! Virtual field trips are bringing experts from the field to students using an interactive, engaging and inspirational educational experiences. From a salmon run live in Campbell River to an Arctic Live Dive in Cambridge Bay, we streamed scientists and traditional knowledge holders from the field in real-time to classrooms. We also streamed to IMAX theatres, Science Centres, and Aquariums. Contact me or Visit LiveIt.Earth for more information.

A Sense of Place: Inupiat Knowledge of the Coast using Aerial Imagery
The ShoreZone Sense of Place project uses North Slope coastal imagery as a medium for recording traditional knowledge about the coast. Imagery is a powerful medium for triggering elders’ memories and stories about places they have lived, hunted and experienced. The project offers an approach for youth and elders to record those memories and stories. It will further the efforts of the North Slope Borough School District to implement the new Iñupiaq Learning Framework and will make aerial imagery of the North Slope coast available to teachers and students.

Participatory Video Workshop
Film workshop for Inupiat youth in the Arctic along with the ShoreZone coastal mapping program. The 1-week filmmaking workshop aimed to give a voice to youth where they interviewed elders, documented their own knowledge of the coast, and joined us in the helicopter to take aerial footage to produce films. Two workshops took place, one in Kaktovik and one in Point Lay, on the North Slope of Alaska. See news coverage here: Shorezone Collaboration Brings Filmmaking to Arctic Students.
Tracy Burns from Kaktovik saw her film shown in three international film festival.
