Decomposition: Kindergarten to Grade 3
Series: LIVE Code with Let’s Talk Science

In this 30-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of decomposition - the breaking down of a problem into smaller parts to make the problem easier to solve. Students will also begin to explore the computational concepts of sequences and loops.

Includes a teacher's guide.

LIVE Code - Focus on Pattern Recognition (Grade 4-6)
Rating

"In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of pattern recognition.

Pattern Recognition occurs when you can identify patterns. When you identify patterns, you can create rules that allow actions to be repeated automatically. Pattern recognition can also improve how quickly a problem can be solved."

The teacher's guide walks you through exactly how to use the broadcast in your classroom.

As part of their reporting process, they are required to report on participation and impact of our programs. If you could please take a moment to complete the following short survey with your students, it would be greatly appreciated.

Live Code with Let's Talk Science - Abstraction: Grades 4-6
Rating

"In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of abstraction.

Abstraction reduces how hard a problem or task is by focusing on what's important. We do that by deciding what the important information is and then removing all the unnecessary details. Abstraction is also used when we want to have one object or word stand for an action."

The teacher's guide is available to download from this link as well.

Living Space - Let's Talk Science
Rating

"Participating classes will explore how indoor environmental conditions influence human health, and identify the best conditions for healthy living. This knowledge is important not only on Earth, but also on the International Space Station (ISS), the future Lunar Gateway, and as long-duration space travel progresses, maybe even on Mars!"

"Students and educators will study the key environmental conditions that are monitored and managed to keep astronauts healthy on the ISS. Students will measure environmental conditions such as temperature, CO2, and relative humidity in their classroom and submit the data to a national database. After developing their understanding of optimal ranges, and collecting data on their current environment, students will make a plan for classroom environmental improvement. The national Living Space database allows students to compare their classroom data with information from other participating classrooms in Canada as well as data from the ISS!"
