What is a Science Quest workshop?

Two energetic university students from the Science Quest team virtually enter your classroom equipped with supplies and enthusiasm for a 90-minute science, engineering, and technology workshop! Our dynamic workshops contain exciting demonstrations, interactive experiments, and hands-on projects. For each grade, there is a workshop that directly ties to Ontario Science curriculum expectations.  

In 2017, we reached over 5000 students across Ontario through our workshops alone.

Who are workshops intended for?

Our workshops are designed for students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 and are made to increase science literacy in youth as well as inspire ALL children to pursue sciences and consider careers in science, engineering, and technology.

When are workshops presented?

Workshops are offered during the months of May and June. Each session is 1.5 hours in length and can be placed in whatever time slot works best with your school day schedule!
