Outreach Programs

3D Science

Our 3D Workshops help educators in the classroom and parents at home introduce science to the children or teenagers in their care. We offer these workshops to help promote an appreciation for Science and Technology in our community.

Our Outreach Programs are offered throughout the year at various locations. Contact Science Timmins to find out when the next one will be available near you.

Colours of Science

Science Timmins regularly holds Colours of Science sessions at the Timmins Public Library. Participants explore the exciting and colourful world of science through hands-on activities that show how science applies to everyday activities.

Thank you to the Timmins Daily Press for covering our Colours of Science program in the news.

Festival of Science

Adopting a different theme every year, the Festival of Science is a weeklong series of workshops and special presentations. This festival is typically offered in a variety of venues, with activities geared to multiple age groups, that culminate with the Regional Science Fair. Over the years, this festival has included Animal Safari, AstroLab, CSI crime scene investigation, and much more.

Fun With Science

Fun with Science is an outreach program for students from kindergarten to grade 12 that takes place within various Northeastern Ontario schools. The program focuses on demonstrations and hands-on activities that emphasize the fun in science.

Over the years, Science Timmins has invited many prominent Canadian scientist to come to Timmins and make special presentations to students and the general public. Our guest speakers have included David Suzuki, Julie Payette, and David Pearson — to name a few.

Health Science Camp

Health Science Camp is designed for children and teenagers who are interested in medical and health sciences. On each camp day, they will learn about what health professionals do, learn about the scientific techniques and technology they use, and see why health professionals love science.

Mentorships

Mentorships help individuals who are studying to complete their scientific research. Through this program, professionals become mentors to students, who are then coached as they complete their research.

Our Outreach Programs are offered throughout the year at various locations. Contact Science Timmins to find out when the next one will be available near you.

Science Mobile

If you can’t come to us for the love of science, we come to you with Science Mobile.

Science Timmins Youth Committee

The Science Timmins Youth Committee is a group of young people who contribute to the success of Science Timmins by sharing ideas and supporting our programs. Members of the Youth Committee participate in and even deliver some of our programs throughout the year. Science on the Go is one of the Science Timmins Youth Committee initiatives.

Special Events

Science Timmins participates at many local, regional, provincial and national events:

  • Every year, five winners from the Regional Science Fair participate at the Canada-Wide Science Fair and the International Science Fair
  • The best senior Science Olympics Team participates every year at provincial Science Olympics competitions
  • The best teams from our Robotics Challenge get to compete at regional and provincial robotics competitions

At these special events, students meet young scientists from across Canada and sometimes the world. They get to exchange scientific ideas and share their accomplishments with their peers. It is a great opportunity for young people to see how fun, exciting and social the sciences can be!
