Science Clubs provide a unique opportunity for children ages 10–14 to engage in exciting learning experiences and develop their scientific curiosity. Our Science Clubs cover a wide range of fields, including biology, chemistry, engineering, environmental science, physics, and robotics, to name a few. Each session is carefully crafted to build your child's knowledge and confidence, all while having a blast. 

We understand the importance of community, and our Science Clubs are the perfect place to connect with other young scientists. Our program is held every second Sunday of the month, from 1 to 3 p.m. for all scientists, and from 10 a.m. to noon exclusively for female and female-identifying students. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to give your child an exciting, educational experience they'll love.

If you wish to make a booking for more than four participants, please get in touch with Sandy Valdivia, Youth Programs Manager. To ensure the accessibility of our programming, we are unable to accommodate groups in a single event.
