Science AL!VE is a not-for-profit organization based out of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. Our mandate is to encourage, inspire and expose youth of all backgrounds to the many fields of science, engineering and technology through hands-on and interactive activities. We offer classroom and on-campus workshops, summer camps, year-round girls clubs and co-ed clubs and many community outreach programs. In 2012, Science AL!VE reached over 7,700 youth in the Lower Mainland, northern BC and Haida Gwaii. This year, Science AL!VE is expanding our outreach program by increasing our focus on Aboriginal outreach in the Lower Mainland.
Science AL!VE aims to spark interest and dispel stereotypes in the fields of science, engineering and technology. We make our programs accessible to all youth regardless of gender, culture, or financial background by offering special programs and bursaries.
Science AL!VE is supported by five SFU faculties and the numerous departments, faculty and staff within them; they are the Faculty of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Environment, Faculty of Communications, Arts and Technology and the Faculty of Education. Science AL!VE has been providing quality interactive science education since 1994.
