Earth & Sky
Sponsored by MEG Energy
Explore your world from the bedrock underfoot to the aurora overhead. In Earth & Sky, the science of understanding this place meets the poetry of living here.
Play in the stream, dig a canyon or cause an avalanche. Recreate a thunderstorm. Watch the sun rise. Think about how blue the sky is. Make music out of raindrops. Experience the forces of nature that have shaped and continue to shape our neighbourhoods and our world.
Earth & Sky takes you on a journey from the banks of Nose Creek deep into the Earth and outward to the stars. Investigate Alberta’s unique geology, the power of water that has sculpted its landscape, its distinct wind and weather systems, the influence of these systems on our daily lives…and our influence on them.
By understanding the interconnectedness and dynamic complexity of these systems, you’ll become more aware of the choices you make and the impact they have on your own life and future generations.

- Be a DJ with raindrops
- Sculpt landscapes through erosion
- Make a snowstorm, or an audio storm
- Bottle the colour of the sky
