AYVA supports MyClassNeeds.ca

 

 

Many students across Canada will have a richer learning experience this year with the addition of classroom supplies that bring education out of the textbook and into curious hands.

AYVA is an Education industry supporter of MyClassNeeds.ca. The Canadian charity helps connect deserving K-12 classroom projects with interested donors through a crowdfunding website. In its first few years, it has helped teachers in publicly-funded schools purchase everything from a cooling unit to raise salmon eggs, to electric motors, to rocket supplies.

Mrs. Sekhon in Surrey, B.C. teaches children in primary classes. She knew that adding butterfly larvae would be a great addition to her class. “We have a diverse group of students who love playing outdoors and exploring nature. We have many English language learner students who have joined us recently and this is a great hands-on way to learning about nature, life cycles and basic needs of local animals, without a language barrier.”

Through MyClassNeeds.ca and supporters like AYVA, Mrs. Sekhon’s students will marvel at the transformation from larvae to butterflies this year.

AYVA at the ASEE Conference in Indianapolis

IMG_4319

In mid June, AYVA President Dianne Beveridge and Western Territory Manager, Stacey Metz attended the ASEE in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year’s theme was “360 Degrees of Engineering Education” and there were many sessions and workshops for attendees to take part in. The conference was well attended by educators and vendors from across the US and Canada.

Three of AYVA’s partners attended as exhibitors, displaying teaching equipment for a variety of engineering areas. TecQuipment, PASCO Scientific and PIGNAT were all in attendance and AYVA representatives were able to collaborate with them on new equipment and ideas to bring back to our customers to assist in reaching their educational goals.

Pictured is Stacey Metz, with PIGNAT representative Regis Rodriguez and PIGNAT’s mini distillation unit, which is similar to those that have been installed at schools across Canada.

We look forward to ASEE next year in Seattle, meeting with our partners in attendance and hope to see many of you there.

  • Wireless Spectrometer Big Hit With Students – PASCO’s wireless spectrometer has been utilized very well by our earth science and physical science teachers. It’s an excellent piece of equipment and we have very much enjoyed its addition to enriching our classroom. It definitely brings students to a higher level of understanding wave interaction at a molecular level.

  • Excellent Smart Cart – I thought the cart was excellent. The quick sampling rate for force will be very useful for momentum and collision labs we do. I’m recommending we include this in our order for next school year.

  • Your lab equipment is of the highest quality and technical support is always there to help. During the 25 years we have used a wide array of lab equipment including computer interfacing. Your Pasco line has a high profile in our lab and will continue to do so far into the future.

  • Datalogging Activities are Cross-Curricular

    Throughout the province of Nova Scotia, PASCO’s probeware technology has been merged with the rollout of the new P-6 curriculum. We chose a number of sensors for use with our project-based activities. Both the functionality and mobility of PASCO’s dataloggers enable students to collect authentic, real-world data, test their hypotheses and build knowledge.

  • We have a large number of PASCO wireless spectrometers and love how they have improved the learning experience for our students.

  • During distance learning due to COVID-19 school shut down, I was given a short window to collect what I could from my classroom to teach online. The PASCO wireless sensors and Smart Carts were my top priority to collect to implement distance learning. By sharing experimental data with students via SPARKVue, the sensors were pivotal in creating an online experience that still allowed students to grow with their lab skills. It was easy to record videos of the data collection and share the data with my students. They did a phenomenal job examining and interpreting the data.
