Workshops

Workshops are BACK for the 2021 Season!

Registration is now open! Click here to sign up for a workshop.

 

We are excited to announce the return of Science Quest workshops for the 2021 season! We look forward to connecting with youth in the community and giving them the opportunity to learn about new and innovative science concepts in real time. This year we are offering the option of in-person AND virtual workshops. (The in-person option is dependent on COVID public health guidelines and may be subject to change.)

 

What is a Science Quest workshop?

Two energetic university students from the Science Quest team 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.

Workshops are all 1.5 hours in length and can be placed in whatever time slot works best with your school day schedule! 

 

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! 

 

Can workshops be presented in French?

Encore en 2021, on vous offre tous nos ateliers fantastiques en fran├žais!

Again in 2021, we will offer all of our amazing workshops in French!
