Outdoor Learning through Patterns in Nature

October 3 - 3, 2023 8:00pm - 9:00pm


With Educators Janice Novakowski & Megan Zeni

Join Janice and Megan to learn about some fantastic resources for educating, engaging, and empowering students around patterns in nature – connecting to math, numeracy and other curricula.

Janice Novakowski is a district teacher consultant in the Richmond School District (BC) where she learns alongside preK-12 educators and students in the areas of mathematics and numeracy. She is also an Adjunct Professor at UBC where she teaches elementary mathematics education courses. Some of Janice’s fondest childhood experiences center on the outdoors, carefully turning over rocks on beaches to find little crabs, log jumping and hiking through moss and fern-filled forests.

Megan Zeni is a mom of 3, an experienced elementary school teacher, and a master gardener. Megan successfully re-imagined the prep position in her public school and turned it into her dream job of spending her days with children in the garden classroom.

Megan is an advocate for taking children outdoors at school in all kinds of weather to learn, play, and grow. Megan is also a PhD candidate at UBC in curriculum & pedagogy.
