Welcome to Scientists in School
Scientists in School (SiS) is a thriving charity dedicated to sparking children's interest in science and technology through hands-on discovery. Founded in 1989, SiS recognizes that early positive exposure to science is critical to instilling a life-long interest. We're focused on developing the bright minds and innovators needed for Canada's economic and social prosperity.
At the heart of SiS's work are our award-winning, inquiry-based workshops for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students. SiS broadens its impact further through participation in countless community events and also acts as a voice for science promotion. Most of all, we make science fun.
Each year SiS inspires 600,000 young people - and their teachers and parents! And our reach continues to grow! Learn More about SiS.
