This year, the pandemic shutdown found many Canadian parents scrambling to innovate their daily routine, in many cases managing work, parenting, at-home learning, errands and housekeeping, and more, all within the confines of their homes.  

Raina Reddecliff is a B.C. parent, writer, and coach based in Kelowna, British Columbia who found herself looking for new ways to keep her daughter engaged and learning at home. We partnered with Raina to explore our Education for Innovation resources with her daughter, showcasing how valuable they can be for parents across the country in these new circumstances. Together, they learned what innovation means through hands-on activities and great Canadian innovations like peanut butter!  

“We loved exploring Canadian innovations and seeing our kids’ curiosity and innovative mindsets grow! It’s wonderful to have access to free resources that support the K-12 BC curriculum for our home learning activities.”
