In 2021, more than 50,000 students and their teachers registered to visit over three days! Here’s what some of them said:

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!

This was such an awesome experience. My students explored the displays & projects. I would love to have this opportunity again. It gave us the opportunity to attend without the expense of travel.
