The Provincial Acquired Brain Injury Education and Prevention Program
The Provincial Acquired Brain Injury Education and Prevention Program is part of a comprehensive strategy managed by Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI). The Acquired Brain Injury Education and Prevention Coordinators may assist communities to develop, coordinate, facilitate and evaluate education and injury prevention initiatives. The Brain Walk Program and P.A.R.T.Y Programs are two initiatives that have been very well received in many communities. Brain Walk is an interactive walk through the brain that helps students from kindergarten through grade six learn about the different functions of the brain and how to keep their brain safe and healthy. The P.A.R.T.Y Program is for grade 10 students. It is a full day of reality education, teaching students about making smart choices and taking smart risks. The program is designed to expose students to the tragic consequences of risk taking behaviours like drinking alcohol and driving, riding in a vehicle without a seatbelt or not wearing a helmet when it is required. If your community has an ongoing project we may be able to support or enhance that project in some way. Some of the topics we cover are bicycle safety, fall prevention, farm safety, and child passenger safety just to name a few.

T.rex Discovery Centre
Your admission to the Centre includes a short documentary, ‘the Dinosaur Hunters’, in the Centre’s Discovery Theatre. The documentary details the discovery and excavation of Scotty, Canada’s most complete Tyrannosaurus rex, who calls the T. rex Discovery Centre its home. Afterwards, visitors can learn about the rich fossil history of SW Saskatchewan by touring the Cretaceous and Tertiary galleries. A visit to the galleries can be self-guided, although a guided tour with one of the knowledgeable interpreters is recommended. Tours are offered regularly throughout the day. As well as a fascinating insight into the life of T. rex and the landscape and environment that Scotty would have roamed, the guided tour offers discussion on the demise of the dinosaurs and the rise and success of the mammals.

University of Saskatchewan Observatory
The observatory houses a 3 meter long refracting telescope with 6 inch diameter lens. On clear Saturday nights, staff will point the telescope at seasonal objects in the sky. Planets, nebulae, star clusters, galaxies, and even comets can be viewed at the right times of the year. On cloudy nights, staff present an educational slide show depicting objects in our solar system, galaxy, and beyond. The Observatory also features a small museum with a tour of our solar system. Exhibits also highlight the history and fundamentals of Astronomy, and there is even a display on black holes! The campus observatory provides the public with weekly viewings of our night sky every Saturday night, admission is free. Tours for school and community groups are arranged for Friday evenings (October - March). Special tours may be arranged during the summer months.

Western Development Museum
The Western Development Museum is a network of four exhibit branches that showcase the social and economic history for the province of Saskatchewan. Our facilities are located in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon, and Yorkton. As part of our newest exhibits, Winning the Prairie Gamble, we have incorporated a variety of science related themes, including weather, natural resources, transportation, and agriculture. Corresponding curriculum based lesson plans for each of these themes (and many more) can be found in our Saskatchewan 1905-2005 Guide for Teachers, available in all Saskatchewan school libraries, for sale at all WDM locations, and online. Hands-on programs for each theme are available at all WDM museum locations. Booking is required for all museum programs.

The Wild and Exotic Animal Medicine Society (WEAMS)
The Wild and Exotic Animal Medicine Society (WEAMS) is a non-profit organization operated by student volunteers at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM). WEAMS offers two educational outreach activities: Wildlife Health 101 and school visits by WEAMS' flying ambassador, Jasmine. Wildlife Health 101 is hosted by WEAMS at the Saskatoon Pet Expo and at the Saskatchewan Wildlife Art Association's Art Show. During these events, WEAMS members introduce people of all ages to Jasmine, plus they answer visitors' questions about wildlife health and the group's activities. Jasmine is a mature Swainson’s hawk that serves as WEAMS’ teaching bird. Throughout the year, Jasmine and her team of volunteer caretakers travel to local libraries and schools where they help to teach children about wildlife. If you would like Jasmine to come to your school or group please contact WEAMS.
