Teen Tuesday

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!

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 Life in Motion. Students will connect directly to STEAM professionals and discover how studying movement can illuminate the past, present and future of the social and physical world. Several of Science World's partner organizations and educational institutions will provide hands-on experiences such as exploring forces and movement and how modelling combines direct measurement with computation.
