What is Lab Rats Club?

Lab Rats is Science AL!VE’s co-ed biweekly science, engineering and technology club for students in grades K - 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.


We have three streams based on grade attending in the 2019/20 school year: Mini Scientists (Grades K-1), Junior Scientists (Grades 2-3), and Senior Scientists (Grades 4-7). 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!
