In collaboration with a number of partners in education and in the aeronautics, science and technology industries, BIM presents two learning and evaluation situations: “Passion From Within,” for students at the elementary level, and “Passion for Flight,” for students at the secondary level. These situations are available for the Science and Technology courses in both French and English.

Financial Literacy at the Elementary Level
In partnership with Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), BIM offers several learning tasks to educate elementary students about financial literacy. The 12 tasks are available in both French and English and are related to one or several of the following subjects: French, Mathematics, English Language Arts, Arts, and Science and Technology.
When carrying out these tasks, students in all three cycles at the elementary level will develop their understanding of:
- the concepts of savings, expenses, income, money, earning, budgeting, planning and scarcity
- the difference between a want and a need
- the consequences of good and bad financial decisions
À la recherche d’une île merveilleuse (available in French only)
This learning and evaluation situation was elaborated by the Ministry (MEES) as part of a research project to gather data on the learning of elementary students in Cycle Three at the beginning of the implementation of the Quebec Education Program.
