For the last 8 years our Team have been delivering large scale engineering challenges to schools in PDSB, engaging elementary students in the Critical Design Process from early childhood. Research has shown that by age 13, 40 % of students have lost interest in Science and Technology and by age 15, 70% of girls have opted out. The reason is believed to be the subjects are “too difficult”.
Our objective is to ensure Every Child in Every School receives a high level of engagement with hands on science and technology at early elementary age. Through this exposure we hope to increase confidence, encourage and demonstrate to students that these subjects are for everyone. The life skills learned breaking down complex problems, analyzing data, seeking solutions & testing not to mention material selection, project planning & delivery remain with us forever and never diminish in importance.
Now as the school year the academy gets into full swing community events are starting to return, although in modified format. We are rolling out our Super Scientist Toolboxes pilot, where we loan schools science equipment. This pilot equips every student with their own equipment so teachers, in conjunction with virtual experiments from Super Scientist, can rock their science program. Lastly - we continue to offer our complimentary virtual field trips to all classes to come and visit us in the laboratory for some science fun - so if you would like to share super scientist with your class tell, your teacher to contact us: [email protected].
Our team consists of Engineers, Scientists and Technologists, teachers and curriculum experts. If you would like to get involved with Super Scientist drop us an email at [email protected] and we thank you for your ongoing support.
