Our Award-winning Workshops

Scientists in School provides young scientists from Kindergarten to Grade 8 with classroom workshops that are curriculum-aligned and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) focused. We extend science learning outside of the classroom with community-based workshops for ages 3-13 at camps, daycares, after-4 programs, libraries, and more. Our presenters bring subject expertise, discovery-based learning methodologies, and specialized materials and equipment making every workshop hands-on.

Inspiring Future Innovators To Pursue STEM Careers

The future of Canada depends on the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. We engage children in hands-on classroom and community STEM workshops, encouraging them to question, investigate and discover science in the world around them. Sparking a long-lasting interest in STEM and the environment, inspiring children to think differently about a future STEM career path and challenging them to succeed are just a few of the things we accomplish in every workshop. We want children to believe they can achieve things they never thought were possible, until they had Scientists in School.
