Terranaut Club is a non-profit organization based out of Nova Scotia that specializes in STEM and environmental education, bringing girls and underrepresented genders (girls+) ages 9-18 to the forefront of exciting, hands-on, immersive experiences in science and nature. For her talk, Sarah Brown, Program Coordinator, will be discussing the different types of programs offered, including 12 summer programs, spring and fall data science and coding workshops, and year-round field trips. She will be touching upon the topics we cover and some testimonials from past participants. Sarah is hoping to raise awareness for their organization and share some of the amazing work they are doing around the Maritimes.
Starting in July and running until the end of August, MTRI will be hosting weekly seminars on Thursday evenings from 7 – 8 p.m. These seminars will be hybrid so you can join online or stop into our field station at 9 Mt Merritt Rd, Kempt to join us and grab some snacks and light refreshments. Our seminars will feature speakers on a range of conservation, indigenous knowledge and wildlife topics including bats, the Terranaut Club, forest fires in Nova Scotia, mushrooms, Mi’kmaw Moons and climate change; just to name a few.
