Argyle Alternative High School (Argyle) is a school located in the inner-city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada near the newly developed Waterfront Drive. We are currently working on the development of an Outdoor Educational Classroom. The project is beautifying the community, building community relationships and establishing partnerships.
The outdoor classroom is providing educational information to students, the community, and general public regarding topics that include Aboriginal culture, sustainability, environmental issues and concerns, mining, and renewable sources of energy.
This blog site is designed to discuss topics pertaining to Argyle’s Outdoor Educational Classroom.
Please refer to Argyle’s web site at www.argylealternative.org for further information on the Outdoor Educational Classroom.
Argyle had the first stand alone wind turbine/solar system installed at a school in Manitoba.
There is also two weather stations on top of the school. Information (temperature, humidity, wind direction, wind speed, barometric pressure) is relayed into the school.
