Now Offering Virtual Workshops and STEM Clubs

 

Scientists in School is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, including the direction from health authorities and school board leadership to ensure that we do everything we can to minimize the spread of the virus. To minimize the risk to all of our customers and the Scientists in School team, our organization will be providing only our Virtual investigative STEM workshops until at least November 30, 2021. We will continue to monitor news, Public Health, and school board guidance, and will provide another update in mid-November regarding the timeline for the return of our in-person workshop experiences.


After 31 years, Scientists in School is branching out. To support young scientists, teachers and parents during COVID, we are now delivering our engaging hands-on STEM workshops and STEM Clubs virtually. All of the highly investigative activities you expect, delivered safely and seamlessly to your classroom or community organization by a team of topic expert presenters.

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.
