Our program in Alberta is expanding.
5 years ago, Lethbridge welcomed Scientists in School. Now, we're building a grassroots program in Calgary.
Thanks for the warm welcome Alberta!

A big warm thank you to everyone who supported our CST Inspired Mind project by voting. Unofficially, looks like we came in 3rd place. If true, that means $25k to make 2,800 low-income kids into scientists!
CST is validating votes and will announce prizes on June 9. Stay tuned.

We know that as a social enterprise charity, some kids may be left out of our programs. So we work every day to ensure that we can provide free workshops to low-income communities.
Can you imagine what $50,000 could do? We can. With $50,000, we could inspire 5,000 more young scientists who otherwise may not have the opportunity to become scientists in school.
Do you need to give us $. No (although we'd welcome it and give you a charitable gift receipt!) You just have to vote - today and every day.
Yes, you have to register. Yes, you have to remember your password. Yes, it takes a minute or so every day. But just think of what it will mean to the children who need this inspiration.
Thank you.

Story
Tagline
A leading Canadian science outreach charity, igniting scientific curiosity in children.
Introduction
Scientists in School - www.scientistsinschool.ca - is a leading science outreach charity dedicated to sparking children's interest in science, technology and the environment through hands-on discovery.

At the heart of Scientists in School's work are our award-winning, inquiry-based workshops for Kindergarten through Grade 8 students. With Scientists in School, students become scientists in their school and are able to see, touch and do science using specialized equipment and materials, all under the guidance of real science experts from their communities. 

Our mission is to ignite scientific curiosity in children so that they: question intelligently, learn through discovery, connect scientific knowledge to their world, and consider a career in science. 

Each year, Scientists in School presents over 22,000 half day workshops in classrooms throughout Ontario and in Alberta, inspiring more than 600,000 elementary students. Scientists in School's nearly 400 presenters are trained science professionals who bring unmatched passion and expertise to their communities. Scientists in School unites the science, education and business communities in the common goal of raising science literacy and encouraging our future innovators.
