EcoSpark partnered with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) to deliver Our Green Schools (OGS), a program to engage students in key environmental issues in their schools. At the elementary level, EcoSpark worked with grade 5 and 6 teachers to produce a curriculum toolkit comprising integrated units to enable students to explore solar energy issues. This toolkit, Our Solar Future, was made available to teachers across the TDSB as well as the province. At the secondary level, OGS included a documentary program where we coached high school students from five TDSB schools to create exciting top quality environmental films based on the issues they were most concerned about. These documentaries were publically screened with much success to a packed audience at the Revue Cinema on June 1st, 2011.
