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!
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 spring 2019 is Mathematical Nature. Several organizations and educational institutions will provide hands-on experiences that allow visitors to see how various fields in science, technology, art and design utilize mathematical relationships and computation in the process of modelling and studying the physical and social world. Science World staff will be showcasing how patterns found in natural can animated through a stroboscope to look like they are growing!
