Sit back and relax as our instructors bring one-hour to one-and-a-half hour workshops straight to the classrooms with interactive demonstrations, activities, and take-home projects for students to create. Teachers can sit back, relax, and watch their students become engaged in the fun of science and engineering. Our highly-trained Instructors will adapt each workshop to suit the individual strengths and challenges of each class. Please contact us to discuss how we can customize our workshops for your group.



Workshops are available either

  • Before Recess (9:00-10:00)
  • After Recess (10:30-11:30)
  • After Lunch (1:00 – 2:00)

This can be altered to fit your school’s bell schedule. Workshops include two instructors and all demonstration and project materials.

 We offer discounted rates when multiple workshops are booked on the same day by the same school. These reduced rates are based on considerable savings in transportation costs. Please note that workshops must follow the schedules below to qualify for the discounted rates.

  • 1 Workshop – $130
  • 3 Workshops @ $115 each = $345 (Same day – 1 before recess, 1 after recess, and 1 afternoon)
  • 6 Workshops @ $=100 each = $600 (Same day – 2 before recess, 2 after recess, and 2 afternoon)

Workshop Topics

(Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have the capacity to offer French or High School Workshops in this location.)

How do living things change to survive in the cold winter versus the warm summer? What do living things need to survive? Join Geering Up and we will explore how living and non-living things interact in their ecosystems and discover what it would take to engineer our own ecosystem.

It’s time to find out what makes up you, the ground you’re standing on, and everything else around us on earth. Dive into the world of matter as we learn about its properties with fun projects and demonstrations! This workshop includes experiments that will help us understand the cycles that happen not only in the sky above us but also on land. There is even a project to bring the excitement home with students.

The world around us is filled with change, even the land we are on right now has changed over time, some of this change is reversible and other changes are permanent. It's time to put on our lab coats and become scientists to discover what causes these changes to occur and why some cannot be undone.

How does thermal energy get from place to place? Why do some materials heat up faster than others? How do molecules act as they get warmer? In this workshop, we will explore the three methods of thermal energy transfer and learn how to harness the power of heat!

BC Science Curriculum Links: Transfer of Thermal Energy, Properties of Matter.

Join Geering Up! for a fun energetic workshop that will explore all the different phases of matter and the different forms of ENERGY. We will learn about the different properties of matter around us and discover how they can be changed by adding or removing energy.

Let’s learn how some of the organ systems in your body work together to keep you alive! It’s time to get hands-on with digestion and respiration! Join Geering Up as we explore the different parts of the digestive system, and learn about the organ system that keeps you breathing.

Through hands-on and interactive activities, demonstrations and a quick lesson, students will discover how Newton’s three laws work together to influence the motion of objects. Students will also learn about gravity and other forces that can be combined to create motion and those that keep objects in place.

BC Science Curriculum Links: Newton’s Laws of Motion, Gravity.

Get ready to dive into a microscopic world filled with atoms of all different types and learn how electricity fuels our lives.  Watt do you know about electricity? It’s time to learn about how electric circuits work, and build some of your own. We will spark your interest as we generate positive ideas about circuits and clean energy.
