BackyardBio is an event presented by Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants
We're a Canadian and U.S registered non-profit dedicated to inspiring the next generation of scientists and explorers. We do this through bringing science, exploration, conservation and adventure live into classroom everywhere through virtual guest speakers and field trips. Since 2015, we've hosted almost 2,000 live events connecting hundreds of thousands of students with scientists and explorers from over 80 countries. What we do is and always will be free for classrooms everywhere.
Each month we host over 40 live events for classrooms, tackling themes like climate change, ocean plastic, biodiversity, space exploration, women in science and exploration, conservation and much more. Classrooms can join in camera spots and interact directly with the speakers, all events stream live over YouTube and Facebook so any number of classrooms can tune in and all events record to our library of past events, accessible to educators and students at any time.
