Our Breathe Smart! Education Program is an interactive in-school presentation that talks about “all things lung”. We educate students on the most important and relevant lung diseases as well as the impact poor lung practises have on their health. This program has a focus on e-cigarettes and vaping, a growing and concerning trend among our youth. Note for the 20/21 school year we are pleased to offer Breathe Smart sessions virtually.
"This presentation would be greatly suited for Science 14/24 as well as science 10/20/30. Out of my 90 Biology 20 students, I do believe a lot of them will come in contact with smoking/vaping pressures, however, a majority of them are not the "smoking crowd". I think they are changed and I think the presentation was GREAT!" Jory Z, Teacher
"I learned about the effects of air pollution on a global and local level. The facts surprised me." Damian, Grade 10 student
"Hands-on learning is by far, one of the most effective tools for learning. The fact that the kids get to see lungs (healthy and diseased), touch them and even observe how they inflate does way more for their learning than reading out of a textbook. The opportunity for this interactive presentation should not be missed." Patricia P, Science Teacher
