School District proposes scale solar system along walking trail

Celestial bodies like stars, planets and asteroid belts would be located at scale distances along the trails, with informative signs. The signs would be classroom projects, and Bell suggested they could have a Quick Response (QR) code, scannable by Smartphones, that would link to a website with more information, again compiled by classes.

Both Bell and Councillor Lori Ackerman agree that this project could easily expand to include older students, Fort St. John historical figures and edible plants. Ackerman believes, "this could expand into bigger and better things. I think it's really important for kids to see that not everyone had a computer growing up."

Bell estimates each sign to cost around $65 each, as well as the posts, concrete and labour. He suggests the signs could be sponsored, adding one local company has already offered.

As Bell is asking the City to endorse a partnership with this project, Council requested an admin report be prepared for next council.
