Program Details

KAST Youth BiodiversiTV is a multimedia and bilingual STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts & Math) + Careers learning experience for youth ages 10 to 18. During its launch in 2020 for Science Literacy Week, we showcased four organizations (aka heroes) working to protect biodiversity within the Kootenay region.

This online educational program was designed just for educators (and everyone who identifies as one in this unique time in history) to provide engaging, multimedia content to learners throughout the Kootenay region.

KAST Youth BiodiversiTV was made possible with the support of National Science & Engineering Research Council (NSERC) for Science Literacy Week 2020.

KAST Youth’s 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!
