What We Do

Over the past 30 years, over nine million children in Canada have been transformed into scientists in our hands-on classroom and community workshops. Led by dynamic presenters who are experts in their fields, our curriculum-aligned workshops enhance learning and help STEM come to life. Sparking curiosity and confidence in children so that they all feel empowered to say, “I can be a scientist!” is at the core of every Scientists in School workshop.

Our Mission

Scientists in School ignites scientific curiosity in children so that they question intelligently; learn through discovery; connect scientific knowledge to their world; are excited about science, technology, engineering and math; and have their interest in careers in those fields piqued.

Our commitment to equity

Our vision

Our vision is for all children in Canada to be actively engaged in the seeing, doing and understanding of science. Our next generation deserves the opportunity to view science and technology as fun, relevant and something that every one of us – even the smallest – can participate in here and now. When children appreciate the world scientifically, it turns existence into both a marvel and an opportunity to make something of that marvel.
