Science Quest School Year Programming is an awesome way to keep your budding scientist or engineer involved in the fun of science & engineering all year long!


Just like our summer Science Quest camps, our school year programming is completely student-run with support from the Engineering Society of Queen’s University. All of our School Year Programming is based on Queen’s University campus in Beamish-Munro Hall, the main engineering building on campus.


For more information on camps, please feel free to contact us at schoolyear@sciencequest.ca or at 613-533-6870. 





Our School Year sessions are split into two main groups:


Junior Thinkers: Grades 1 – 3 

Novice Explorers: Grades 4 – 8


Both groups do super cool hands-on experiments and participate in exciting inquiry-based learning activities and challenges.



Instruction Team


Our fantastic instructors are all undergraduate students at Queen’s University, in both engineering & science programs, and serve as positive role models to help inspire your scientist’s interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).





School Year sessions meet once-twice a month, from September-November, and again from January-March. Sessions will always take place on Saturday afternoons from 1-4 pm, and each session will focus on a different stream of science.


Fall and Winter Sessions have different activities but the same instructors – you can sign up for as many or as few dates as you would like!


Exciting topics that you can expect to see in the coming season include: 






…and more!
