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 WDMs in Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, North Battleford, Yorkton, and Moose Jaw) or the Prince Albert Science Centre 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.

With generous support from SaskEnergy, SES is offering bus subsidies to select SSBB schools to visit the WDM, and with generous support from the Prince Albert Community Foundation and Affinity Credit Union, SES is offering bus subsidies to select SSBB schools to visit the Prince Albert Science Centre. To register for the program and the subsidy, please visit the WDM website and view the Information Package for registration and program details.
