Now Offering Virtual Workshops and STEM Clubs

 

Happy 2021-22 school year!

Scientists in School invites you to build wonder, curiosity and STEM engagement in your students, while minimizing the risk of spreading the virus, with our virtual workshops. In these rich, engaging, investigative experiences, students love becoming scientists, receive their own topic-curated Mini Science Bags, and have the opportunity for plentiful interaction with our virtually visiting STEM experts during their 60-minute session. Our free, post-workshop Teacher Resources allow teachers to extend the exploration as their students continue to use the materials in their Mini Science Bags.

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.
