Smarter Science Better Buildings

The Smarter Science Better Buildings (SSBB) program is a partnership between the SES and the Western Development Museum (WDM) focusing on energy efficient homes. Designed to meet outcomes in the grade 7 Science, Heat, and Temperature unit, students visit one of the four WDM’s in Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, North Battleford, Yorkton, and Moose Jaw) for a half-day program. SSBB combines interactive displays specific to energy efficiency in buildings, with inquiry into the energy efficiency of the historical buildings at each site. For more information and resources, please visit the Smarter Science Better Buildings section on the WDM website.

Due to a grant from SaskEnergy, many schools in each location are receiving free transportation to and from the WDM.
