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!

Michelle, Gr 6/7 Teacher, ON

 

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

Kelsey Knoblauch, Gr 6 Teacher, SK

 

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

Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics

 

This is one of the most important annual events in Canada, bringing together thousands of kids interested and engaged in STEM. For Science Odyssey, it is an honour to be partnering with YSC and CWSF, and together contribute to foster a strong science culture in Canada.
