In-School Workshops

Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Workshops for Grades 3 to 8

The goal of our workshops is to introduce participants to concepts in the sciences and engineering, while integrating elements of engineering design, leadership and peer support. These considerations are important to those interested in pursuing STEM at the post-secondary level, for developing STEM literacy, and in contributing to self-actualization in any setting.

These workshops connect engineering to the three overall expectations of the science program in Ontario:

1. to relate science and technology to society and the environment

2. to develop the skills, strategies, and habits of mind required for scientific and technological problem solving

3. to understand the basic concepts of science and technology

These workshops also draw on Ministry guidelines for Leadership and Peer Support (GPP3O) to explore group dynamics, interpersonal relations, and communication, values, problem-solving and decision-making skills.

Registration for 2020 In-School Workshops is open!

This year, we will offer workshops for grade 3-8 classes and groups in May and June of 2020.

Our workshops complement and expand on the Ontario science curriculum. Instructors use discovery-based activities to highlight topics in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
