Alberta Science Network (Edmonton)
Our unique science, engineering, and technology-related presentations complement the Alberta Education Science Curriculum, make the connection to the real world, and get kids excited about science! Through personal interaction with scientists, engineers and technologists, students and teachers have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the science that impacts our daily lives, to increase their understanding of scientific concepts, to evaluate information, and to make informed decisions.
Formed in 1991 as the Calgary Science Network, in January of 2014 we joined with affiliates operating in other centres across the province and became the Alberta Science Network. ASN has a provincial mandate to offer engaging programs to students, their teachers, and the general public through our branches in Calgary, Edmonton, Central Alberta, and Northern Alberta, and with affiliate networks in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat.
Core programs include:
• Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom (SEitC)
• Teacher Workshops
• Community Events
• Regional classroom resources
ASN is generously supported by the provincial government, corporations, foundations, and many individuals. Donations-in-kind and services-in-lieu also support this program.
Uniquely serving Alberta for over 20 years, our volunteers have reached hundreds of thousands of students across the province, sharing their passion
for science - one classroom at a time!
We bring science to life for kids through hands-on activities and provide educators with tools and resources to get kids excited about science.
Kids inspired by science who have fun discovering its relevance to everyday life.
