AL!VE Girls Clubs - Registration is NOW OPEN for Summer 2017!

AL!VE Girls is Science AL!VE’s biweekly science, engineering and technology club for girls in grades K - 7! Club members join Science AL!VE female instructors for activities or presentations from female scientists in the SFU science labs and campus facilities, or for science-related field trips throughout the lower mainland. The focus of the meetings is exploration of the fascinating world of Science, Engineering and Technology through hands-on activities, take-home projects and presentations given by enthusiastic female scientists.

How old do I need to be to join?

We have three streams based on grade completed as of June 2016: Mini Scientists (Grades K-1), Junior Scientists (Grades 2-4), and Senior Scientists (Grades 5-7). Participants from all the AL!VE Girls clubs will meet at the same time and locations (in separate classrooms), and will participate in activities specialized for their respective age groups!
