Programs You Can Support

Community Access Programs

Through our Community Access and outreach programs, we provide admission to approximately 70,000 adults and children a year who otherwise could not visit the Centre.

Through our Adopt-a-Class program—serving over 30,000 students per year—a donation of $1,000 will send a class of students from underserved neighbourhoods to the Science Centre, where they will participate in unforgettable science learning and experiences.

Mental Health: The Science of Anxiety

Now in its third year, to date, more than 13,000 students have experienced this interactive science program, which breaks down how our brains and bodies react to stress while introducing students to evidence-based coping strategies.

Your support will allow us to continue to enhance this program with new research, materials and extend its reach to more students—at the Science Centre or possibly even through outreach into classrooms.

Science School

The Science School, one of our longest-running programs, started in 1982. Students complete Grade 12 science and math credits, participate in interactive visitor-facing projects and take a credit course in Innovation—one-of-a-kind in Ontario. With its foundation in group collaboration, science communication, lab work and real-world problem-solving, graduates have gone on to remarkable careers in science, math, engineering, medicine, art, music and more.

Your support will allow us to enhance the resources needed for the Science School’s innovative, hands-on programming.
