About This Charity
Scientists in School's mission is to ignite scientific curiosity in children so that they question intelligently, learn through discovery, connect scientific knowledge to their world, and consider a career in science.
Annually, more than 600,000 children and youth in more than 22,000 English and French-speaking classrooms in more than 270 communities across Ontario and Southern Alberta experience a half-day Scientists in School workshop each year. In the last 25 years, more than six million children have become scientists in their schools.
Today they're scientists in school. Tomorrow they're our leaders and innovators.
About Our Charity
Founded in 1989, Scientists in School is a leading science education charity that delivers in-class, hands-on science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and environmental workshops to Kindergarten to Grade 8 children. Our workshops enrich STEM curriculum through real-world, investigative activities, specialized materials and equipment, and highly-trained local presenters who are scientific role models.
Donations to Scientists in School help us to do things such as subsidize workshop costs for schools, offer complimentary workshops to school and community groups servicing low-income neighborhoods, fill presenter kits for our workshops with specialized materials and equipment, train presenters, develop new workshops, revise existing workshops and expand our program into new regions and communities.
