School Talks

Presenting Brian Keating!

The Speaker

We are excited to be able to provide a speaker this year that will appeal to all ages with an exciting and inspiring presentation! Brian Keating’s “Going Wild” on the surface, takes audience members on a journey to some of the best wilderness locations on the planet. But diving a little deeper it highlights the importance of stewardship, environmental conservation and responsibility. Brian Keating has been on CBC Radio Edmonton, Discovery Channel and has been working in his field for many many years. He has been in a Conservation Adivsory role with the Calgary Zoo for many years. More information on Brian Keating can be found at www.goingwild.org

The Talks

We want as many people as possible, to get an opportunity to see Brian present. We have two opportunities for you!

Morning Talk – Thursday, April 3rd 10:00am, Keyano College Theatre

Afternoon Talk – Thursday, April 3rd 1:30pm Westwood Community High School Gymnasium

The Process

To ensure that everyone has fair access to the talks. The morning talk is going to be open for grades 4-6, and the afternoon talk is going to be open for grades 7-12.

For the morning talk, We will accept applications for 1 class to attend from each school for one week. If, at the end of the week, there is still room to fill the theatre, we will open it up for schools to bring a second class (or contact schools who have yet to register a class to see if they would like to attend). Priority will be given to schools who are not yet participating. All transportation arrangements are made and provided by the Wood Buffalo Youth Science Foundation. Corey Conroy will be contacting you at the end of March to confirm pick-up and drop-off times.

For the afternoon talk, we will give each High School and Junior High School 2 buses to fill. It will be up to the schools to decide which classes will get to come as long as they can all fit in the two buses provided. Again, all transportation arrangements are made and provided by the Wood Buffalo Youth Science Foundation.

The Application

Applications are now closed for 2014. Thank you.
