Science AL!VE is a student-run, not-for-profit organization based at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. We provide opportunities for youth to explore science beyond the textbooks through hands-on, interactive discovery, which stimulates their interest and fosters confidence.
During the summer, we run science summer camps at SFU's Burnaby and Surrey campuses, as well as on Haida Gwaii and in various communities in Northern BC. During the school year we lead on-campus and in-class workshops, weekend clubs, after-school programs, and various community events.
We strive to make science accessible to all youth regardless of gender, culture, or level of affluence. Our outstanding staff and volunteers are committed to sparking the enthusiasm and imaginations of their audiences. They serve as positive role models, dispelling the stereotypes associated with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
