Coastal Climate Week

Science Literacy Week will be celebrated throughout Canada from September 20th to 26th. During this week, the West Coast NEST along with other educational organizations from across the country will be highlighting all the wonderful, diverse science resources available to us including books, movies, podcasts, exhibits, and more!

This year’s Science Literacy Week theme is CLIMATE. We want to engage our communities in discussion about climate and what it means to us here on the coast. The West Coast NEST in partnership with Royal Roads University will be spending the week sharing resources and hosting a number of contests! 

Amazing resources for your exploration will be shared to our social media accounts throughout the week, so stay tuned!
