We are proud to be a part of the Inquiring Minds site-based school programs in Edmonton.
This unique program is available to Elementary and Junior High classes and their teachers. It allows a class to visit and learn at the Science Centre for one week.
Applications for the 2021-2022 school year are now closed. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will open in January 2022.
Science School is designed to inspire students to explore STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) through collaborative design projects, guided explorations of the natural environment, experimentation with engineering and technology, and learning through play. This journey will help students develop a passion for science and discover the areas that excite them. In addition, students will journal and reflect on their experiences, as these are key components of the Inquiring Minds philosophy. Our Science School site coordinator will work closely with you, the classroom teacher, to identify resources available at the science centre that line up with your “Big Idea” for the week. Though the classroom teacher is responsible for their class, we will help facilitate activities, events and reflections.
