Our instructors bring 1 to 1.5 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.

We are based out of the UBC Point Grey campus, and our Vancouver Area workshops include Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond, North Van, West Van and Surrey.
