Here is a curated list of successful past events. Have a look and find new ways of creating engaging Science Odyssey activities.
(Available in French only)
The foreseen activity is an "Open doors invitation" to the general public on the theme "Earth Sciences". This activity will include a visit of our facilities at the Club de minéralogie de Montréal (mineralogy and paleontology museums) and various demonstrations in different workshops on lapidary arts, mineral micro-mounts and fluorescent minerals. It will be possible to exchange with our volunteers on various subjects such as Fossils of Montreal, or visits to the different quarries near Montreal.
Canada’s brightest young scientists will be in Regina May 14-20 for the 56th edition of the Canada-Wide Science Fair. The event will feature 500 students and their 400 projects that have earned top marks at regional science fairs across the country. Alongside the competition, the fair will feature STEAM 2017, a festival of learning in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Members of the public are welcome to attend the fair from May 18 to 20 at the University of Regina. For more information, please visit cwsf.youthscience.ca/welcome-cwsf.

Chrysalides et Papillons veut inciter les jeunes à participer à une activité de sciences par le biais d’un projet touchant la biodiversité des insectes et plus spécifiquement à la métamorphose du papillon. Le projet a été conçu pour que l’ensemble des élèves de chacune des classes puisse participer.
Le CLS en collaboration avec différents établissements scolaires de la région a décidé de mettre en place ce projet scientifique pour motiver les élèves en explorant l’univers du vivant.
Ce projet qui s’échelonne sur une période de deux semaines séparées en trois temps :
1- L’exploration du monde fascinant des insectes ;
2- De la chenille au papillon : les élèves assisteront en classe au processus de la métamorphose ;
3- L’envolée : une cérémonie suivant les rites des peuples amérindiens sera célébrée.
BC Hydro's Visitor Centres will be open for the 2017 season as of Saturday, May 20! Come join our team of Tour Guides at the Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre for tours, information about hydro-electricity, hands on activities and more fun! For more information, please visit our website.
Let’s Talk Science Outreach Program connects educators and youth with our volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities for children as young as three years old and youth up to Grade 12. Our Let’s Talk Science volunteers will share their knowledge to support educators, and inspire and engage children —helping them to develop science literacy, build critical skills, foster the joy of learning, and discover the relevance of science in their own lives.
Kids will love to let their imaginations run wild in the Variety Heritage Adventure Park, sliding and splashing through 6,000 years of history along the way. Come sunshine or snow, there’s always something to enjoy--tap your toes at a free concert or skate the frozen river trails.
Actua will offer a STEM open house event in Kugaruuk. Parents and community members will be invited to the respective school for an evening of hands-on STEM challenges, where they will be directly engaged in a hands-on experiential learning opportunity. Working together they will apply their critical thinking and collaboration skills with their knowledge of STEM through a series of fun design and build challenges.
In this fun interactive workshop, students will discover three different kinds of energy: light, heat and sound. Through hands-on activities and exploration, they will find out how energy is used in our daily life!
This workshop is for a private group. (Not open to general public)
Inspired by the annual MATE ROV competition and in recognition of Science Odyssey week, WISE NL in partnership with the Marine Institute will host an educational webinar through CITL with the students of Belanger Memorial and St. Lewis Academy. The webinar will take place May 17th, 2017 from 1 to 4 pm, NDT. The goal of the webinar is to encourage Aboriginal students (both female and male) to explore fields in S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and math). The webinar will focus primarily on careers in Ocean Technologies and will include a live demonstration on how to assemble an ROV starter kit.
