Testimonials

For my Grade 6/7 class, exploring the science fair projects in Project Zone and STEM Expo was a welcome addition to our remote learning science curriculum. My students really enjoyed playing the scavenger hunt and the escape room activities. Navigating the site and learning about new ideas and innovations, provided us with rich learning discussions!

My students were SUPER eager to engage in the CWSF activities this week!

Our Power of Ideas team couldn’t say enough about what an amazing experience it was interacting with the students. They were so engaged.
