In-School Science Field Trip Descriptions

Colourful Chemistry (pre-K) Use chemistry to mix, create, and explore colours. 

Making Sense of the Five Senses (Pre-K, K) Using our fascinating five senses we will explore and classify the properties of familiar materials.

Light & Sound (Grade 1) What are the properties of light and sound? How are they similar? Different? Discover this and more with exciting activities!

Insect Mania (Grade 1 - 3) What are the basic needs of insects? Discover how their features help them survive and adapt to their environments. 

Properties of Matter (Grade 1- 4) What makes the properties of matter useful? How can these properties change? What are the phases of matter?

Water (Every)Where? (Grade 2) Why is water important to all living things? How does it cycle through the environment? Explore local water issues and construct a filtration device to clean your polluted water. 

Earth & Erosion (Grade 3) Simulate erosion and change landforms all with the power of water.

Thermal Energy (Grade 3-4) Discover the true nature of heat: what it is, how it is created, and how it can be transferred.

Transforming Energy (Grade 4) How do we make energy work for us? Discover the many ways to make useful electricity from different energy sources.

Human Anatomy (Grade 5) Explore human anatomy. Learn the basic structures and functions of the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems.

Solutions & Solubility (Grade 5) Uncover one of the keys of chemistry as you control the properties of solutions through their concentrations.

Heterogeneous Mixtures (Grade 6) Scientifically determine the properties of different materials then use your skill and imagination to manipulate and separate them.
