ORCA LIVE - ÉPAULARDS EN DIRECT
25 SEPT, 2018
AN EPIC JOURNEY TO DISCOVER OUR RICH PACIFIC NORTHWEST
During the Orca Live show, K-12 students across British Columbia were able to connect with orca experts and T'Sou-ke Nation knowledge holder Jeff Welch live from Eagle Wing Whale Watching boat out of Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Two shows in English and one show in French were made available and we had lots of great questions and conversation during the 3 shows with over 4,500 students and over 350+ questions posted on Twitter. IMAX Victoria also streamed the show live with over 200 students.
This pilot was Live It's new production on their platform, comprising of live show and pre- and post- curriculum to create an interactive multimedia learning experience for students and get them interested in the topic of orcas, their ecosystems, their threats, and actions they can take to help them. A pre- and post- curriculum following the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) approach was provided, to prepare students to the live show and deepen the learning afterwards. Students were able to see, hear and communicate in real-time with our team in the field.
