There are many two-week (80 hours) placement periods throughout the year, the first of which begins in September, following the school-year calendar. We can accommodate a maximum of 12 students during each placement period. All placements begin on the Saturday and continue until the third following Sunday. Days off are staggered so that there are five or six students in the building on any given day, including weekends and holidays.
Hours are 8:30am–5:30pm Monday–Friday and 9:15am–6:15pm weekends and holidays.
The registration process is on a first-come, first-served basis. Register your students as soon as possible, as placements fill up quickly.
Register by contacting Science World via email at email@example.com.
No telephone reservations, please. In your email, indicate how many placements
you would like to reserve for any of the work terms listed. Each student
requires one placement. No more than two students from the same school can be registered
for any one placement period.
Science World will contact you about the status of
your application within five days of receiving your request.
If the desired term is full, your student(s) will be
placed on a wait list, and you will be kept apprised of their status.
No less than three weeks before the start of the work-placement
term, please contact Science World and confirm your reserved placements by
submitting the students’ names and phone numbers. If you fail to do this, the
placements will be given to students on the wait list.
If you have students on the wait list, you will be
contacted up to three weeks before the placement about any openings.
Following confirmation, students will be contacted for
an interview to determine their suitability. If your student is found to be
unsuitable for a placement, we will contact you directly about a replacement.
