Science AL!VE is a student-run not-for-profit organization based at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. We are also a proud member of Actua, a national organization that reaches 225,000 youth annually. We provide opportunities for youth to explore science beyond the textbook 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. During the school year we lead on-campus and in-class workshops, a club for girls, a co-ed weekend club, 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, and serve as positive role models, dispelling the stereotypes associated with scientists.
Science AL!VE is a member of Actua. Actua provides training, resources and support to a national network of local organizations offering science and technology education programs. Actua members reach over 200,000 youth, in 450 communities nation-wide per year.
