STEM for our (Grand) Children

Paula Hollahan

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are some of the tools our grandchildren will need to go forward in a world of computers, automation, AI and revolutionary technologies we cannot even imagine. STEM will certainly be needed to help solve the enormous environmental issue facing us. How are we preparing them for this new world?

Paula Hollohan will provide a quick overview of STEM learning in schools and how we can all help students get a head start on STEM and STEAM learning.  She will be introducing some of the resources used at the Doucette Library that are examples of great STEM items for children and young adults to use to play and learn and invent, discover and innovate. 

Paula Hollohan

Paula is Instructional Technologies and Information Specialist at the Doucette Library.  Before this position, she was at an elementary school in the library for 14 years.  Her work at the Doucette Library at the University of Calgary allows her to learn and teach many of the current STEM resources, especially educational technologies, that are present in K-12 schools. Paula has been involved with Beakerhead, Campus Collisions and TedX. Her blog called, “Doucette Ed Tech” focuses on her learning of various educational technologies and the opportunities to engage with people in the Maker Space community. She is mother to two successful geeks.

DRAINING THE HEADWATERS

Kevin Van Tighem

Several previous speakers at CALL (including Kevin) have stressed the importance of our foothills in providing a clean and reliable water supply for Calgary and other cities in Alberta. Kevin will discuss how too many roads and off-highway vehicle trails are eroding Alberta's water future — and what we can do about it.

Kevin Van Tighem was born and raised in Calgary.  His family roots in what is now Alberta go back to 1875. He graduated with a degree in plant ecology from the University of Calgary in 1977 and went on to work as a biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service.  In 1985 Kevin joined Parks Canada and subsequently worked in Jasper, Yoho and Waterton Lakes National Parks. He went on to be superintendent of Prince Albert, Elk Island and then Banff before retiring in 2011.

Kevin is the author of fourteen books on wildlife and conservation and writes a regular column (“This Land”) in Alberta Views magazine.  

His most recent book is Our Place/Changing the Nature of Alberta.
