Description

DiscoverE delivers engineering and science classroom workshops in a fun and interactive way! Each of our workshops is designed to enhance Alberta Learning Curriculum topics through exciting demonstrations, interactive experiments, and a fun hands-on activity. Past workshop participants have built Doppler sirens, engineered drawbridges, built periscopes, and designed flying gliders!

Our in-school workshops function as excellent unit introductions or reviews. We integrate SMART board technology when possible, and provide teachers with fun worksheets to supplement the hands-on learning we deliver.
