STEM Workshops and Programs

Our virtual workshops* are available across Canada and open the wonders of science and engineering to everyone, foster environmental stewardship, and encourage children to discover how science is used in their everyday world. They provide rich, engaging and investigative experiences with plentiful opportunities for youth to interact with the ‘visiting’ scientist guiding the workshop.

Due to COVID-19, we are only offering virtual workshops right now, but look forward to the day when we can be back in-person with you and your young scientists.

*All virtual workshops include mini science bags individually-packaged for each participant and sent ahead of the session date.

What Makes Scientists in School Experiences So Impactful?

  • Children get to explore and discover using topic-specific materials in our highly investigative and engaging workshops.
  • Our presenters have academic or professional backgrounds in STEM, and experience working with youth.
  • We offer free resources, including post-workshop extension packages, so that the learning can continue long after the workshop ends!
  • As a charity, our amazing donors subsidize all of our workshops, which keeps the cost more affordable.
  • We have been developing and delivering high-quality STEM enrichment since 1989 and have inspired over 10 million children across Canada.

Value Proposition

Your inquisitive young scientists (and their parents for business events), under the guidance of experts, will become scientists, engineers and environmental stewards while developing the global competency skills they need to become tomorrow’s STEM workforce.

Impact Story : Nicholas, Engineering Science student at the University of Toronto

“In all of these investigations, I felt a sense of wonder instilled in me by the program. I was always excited going into Scientists in School, as I knew I would learn so much more about what I had observed on my own in the outside world. From analyzing the construction of insects to the physics of simple machines, my curiosity was always reinforced by the omnipresent sense of wonder I felt while completing that day’s experiments and activities.”
