After School Programs

Science AL!VE's after school programs feature exciting lessons in all things STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). These programs can be set up at any elementary school in the Tri-Cities, Burnaby, Surrey or elsewhere by special request! The programs typically run once a week over an 8 week time period*. These sessions are taught by our specially trained university instructors and feature 1-2 hours of science based curriculum! However, this is not just an extension of the school day. Our programs are designed to be interactive, hands on, and super fun for students in Kindergarten through Grade 5! 

*Number of sessions can usually be adapted upon request to fit your institution's particular schedule. 

If your school is interested in starting up an After School Program at your school please contact us at saadmin@sfu.ca
