What Teachers Are Saying

K.EGold Bar School

The activities were informative and closely tied to the grade 2 Science learning outcomes. The students loved the CSI theme and were highly engaged in the station tasks. I have a diverse group of students and all were able to be involved in the learning. The Presenter was an exceptional and had a great rapport with the students. (In-School program)

Grade 2 TeacherSt. Wilfrid School

The centers were well prepared with a lot of hands-on activities. The visuals were also helpful especially for the grade 2 class that I have that is majorly ELL learners. (In-School program)
