Lab Rats is Science AL!VE’s co-ed biweekly science, engineering and technology club for students in grades 1 - 7! Club members join Science AL!VE's instructors for activities that focus on exploring the fascinating world of Science, Engineering and Technology through hands-on activities, take-home projects and presentations given by enthusiastic undergraduate students in a variety of STEM fields.

How old do I need to be to join?

We have three streams based on grade attending in the 2018/19 school year: Mini Scientists (Grades 1-2), Junior Scientists (Grades 3-4), and Senior Scientists (Grades 5-7). Participants from all the Lab Rats clubs will meet at the same time and locations (in separate classrooms), and will participate in activities specialized for their respective age groups!
