GLOWS is KAST’s youth program. GLOWS (Growing & Learning Opportunities With STEAM) provides opportunities to help Kootenay youth ages 5-19 find inspiration about their post-secondary education in a variety of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) disciplines. Throughout BiodiversiTV, we showcase how STEAM is integrated into each of the organizations doing impactful work protecting biodiversity in the Kootenay region.
GLOWS purpose is to encourage Kootenay youth to pursue further education in STEAM. We do this by introducing youth to learning opportunities, engaging content, and inspirational people! BiodiversiTV is our first program that showcases relevant education pathways, and a sneak peek into the career paths of local professionals doing amazing work in STEAM!
