Let Science North bring our School Programs to you!
Science North strives to make science fun, dynamic and easy to understand with experiments, demonstrations and hands-on activities. Through Science North’s Science en Route program, students from distant communities are able to enjoy, learn and develop new understandings and passion for science. All programs are designed to meet learning objectives set out by the 2007 Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum. We offer a variety of classroom programs and assembly-style science shows to reach a wide audience of students.
We require access to programming spaces, such as classrooms and/or gymnasiums, to allow time for set-up and takedown.
For reasons of quality and safety, classroom programs have a maximum capacity of 30 students per program. There is no maximum capacity for assembly-style science show presentations although we recommend no more than 250 students for an optimal experience.
Science North Outreach programs serve communities at least 100 km from Sudbury. Science North invites nearby schools to visit our facility and make use of our in-house school programs.
For more information, availability or to book a visit from Science North:
To maximize effective use of resources, Science North will travel to Northern regions once one or a group of schools have booked a minimum of 4 or 5 programming days. Science North staff will seek new clients in the area and your help in promoting the program to increase the length of stay in your community would be appreciated. All bookings are tentative until the week has been fully booked.
Requests may be made at anytime. Bookings are based on a first come, first served basis – all requests are considered, but not guaranteed. A signed booking contract is required to secure the date.
Program cancellations received with less than one month notice will result in a full program fee being charged.
In the event Science North is unable to present a program due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstance, a full refund will be issued if an alternate date is not available.
Science North offers fun and interactive classroom programs for JK to grade 8 that provide a unique, hands-on learning experience for your students that is curriculum linked.
A Science North Family Science Night is a two-hour evening program of hands-on science activities held in your elementary school. Children and their parents work together to conduct simple, inquiry-based, age-appropriate science activities.
There are two primary goals:
Science North will provide the science stations, including all materials and instructions.
Please note that this program will require help from school volunteers.
