Workshops > On-Campus
Science AL!VE offers on-campus workshops from September to April. Each two hour workshop is designed for classes and groups of participants currently in grades 2 through 7. On-campus workshops expose participants to the University environment while they explore the dynamic fields of science, technology and engineering. Topics for the 2012/ 2013 on-campus workshops are listed below.
Our workshops combine theory and application with interactive hands-on activities, experiments and demonstrations. All workshops are developed to correspond to the 2005 Prescribed Learning Outcomes for grades 2 - 7. Therefore students are able to explore science, engineering and technology in a fun and interactive manner, while satisfying curriculum requirements. Available September 2012 to April 2013
All workshops workshops are tailored to the various grade levels. Teachers may pick the workshop that fits their needs, and students will receive age-appropriate and engaging curriculum.
