In June, 2010, a Science North base in Thunder Bay was established to facilitate the delivery of our camps and Outreach programs to communities in Northwestern Ontario.
Science North’s Outreach programs introduce a unique brand of hands-on science education experiences. This is done through the Cool Science Caravan where Science North staff travel in a van to several communities across the North throughout the year, delivering bilingual outreach programs in schools, at festivals and fairs, special events, malls and libraries. In the summer of 2010, Science North offered week-long summer science camps in nine communities west of Wawa.
Staff also go into schools with more formal, curriculum-based structured programs and in the future, video/web conferencing will be offered where teachers are sent a kit with science equipment and supplies to share with their classroom, as a Science North Scientist delivers the science program from a studio located at Science North.
The Science North Thunder Bay base shares its space with the Boys and Girls Club of Thunder Bay and is located at:
270 Windsor St
Thunder Bay, ON, P7B 1V6
