Secondary School Offerings

On Teen Tuesdays, Science World only accepts bookings from secondary schools and offers additional Grade 8–12 curriculum-connected programming. We know that teens don't like to be treated like children so we are thrilled to create a space where they can engage with science in the company of their peers!

November 20, December 18, 2018
January 15, February 19, March 12, April 9, May 14, and June 11, 2019

What's a Teen Tuesday like? 

One week before your reserved visit, our Youth Programs Specialist will email teachers with a confirmed list of special guests and activities.

The theme for fall 2019 is Modelling and Visualizing Motion. Several organizations and educational institutions will provide hands-on experiences that allow visitors to see how various fields in science, technology, art, design and mathematics tackle and utilize the process of modelling and visualizing the motion of physical and biological systems. Science World staff will be showcasing how we can use our smartphones as a tool to study motion outside of human perception.
