We recognize that today’s youth will ultimately be responsible for the “Quest for Net-Zero Emissions” by 2050. LearnEnergy is embarking on a mission to introduce, inspire and educate high school science students about the organizations and technology companies that are leading the way to achieve this worldwide goal.
Our goal is to inspire and motivate youth to take up the challenge to enter career paths or make personal choices that will support this worldwide Quest. We need future leaders that understand what is being done today and what the challenges are for tomorrow.
Our pilot project in the fall 2022 provided an interactive live virtual meeting to a classroom of Edmonton high school science students and their teacher. The meeting was recorded and posted to LearnEnergy’s YouTube Channel so that other classes can benefit from it at any time. Our pilot meeting presenters were Isabella Tarasco from Emissions Reduction Alberta, and Madison Savilow from Carbon Upcycling Technologies- an Alberta carbon capture and utilization technology company.
Each virtual meeting provides the opportunity for students or teachers to ask questions for 5 -10 minutes. The pilot meeting was very well received with a request for more.

An Edmonton high school science teacher shared this feedback about the video: “It brings a local perspective on energy and climate awareness that isn’t found in the textbook, allowing students to have more connections to the material.”
