Students building science exhibits, guided by STEAM professionals!
Fall session: September to December 2023
Spring session: February to May 2024
$19 per student
Teachers, it’s time to immerse your students in some seriously super science in Prototype Project! This semester-long program (formerly called DIY Science Centre) includes a combination of classroom visits and experiences at the science centre.
Guided by Spark Science Educators and mentors from the science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) fields, students will build a prototype of their very own science exhibit. Along the way, they’ll dive deep into the design-thinking process and explore a STEAM subject of their choosing. They’ll also have a chance to practice their science communication skills when they show off their exhibits to their family and friends at the Celebration of Learning program grand finale at Spark!
Prototype Project is part of the new Beakerhead suite of education programs, offering dynamic learning opportunities that can go beyond the curriculum.
The registration deadline for the fall 2023 session (including payment) is September 17.
Fall 2023: September – December 2023
