The Faculty of Science is pleased to provide the following ways of exploring science and discovering innovation:
Let’s Talk Science provides a unique opportunity for you to invite a university student volunteer into your classroom to conduct curriculum-aligned, hands-on science activities with your students at no cost to you or your school. We have a wide variety of activities developed both by Let's Talk Science national office and by Science Outreach here at the University of Waterloo, that are sure to engage students in kindergarten through Grade 11. Please visit http://letstalkscience.ca/uwaterloo.html or contact Heather Neufeld for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
This enrichment event is an exciting question and answer competition with fun, hands-on design challenges that inspires Grade 6, 7 and 8 students to acquire science knowledge beyond their curriculum. Participants work in teams of four to study the All Science Challenge Handbook, which covers a tremendous range of science material. All this preparation culminates in a one day event, with parents and classmates invited to cheer on their teams! Prizes are awarded to the winners and participation certificates are awarded to all team members.
The University of Waterloo will host an All Science Challenge in late April 2014. Contact Heather Neufeld if you would like to have your students participate.
The Earth Sciences Museum, located in the heart of Waterloo's main campus, offers a number of hands on activities and interesting talks for groups of all ages. Possible topics range from talks on Dinosaurs to Volcanos, the Geology of Ontario to Ground Water.
Canada's only museum dedicated to preserving the history of vision science.
