Classroom Workshops

Classroom Workshops

DiscoverE delivers engineering and science classroom workshops in a fun and interactive way! Workshops are presented by a pair of enthusiastic, highly-trained University of Alberta student instructors who bring in all the materials and take care of the clean-up. Student participants will get a take home project to keep or complete an engineering challenge. Our instructors also act as role-models in higher education to the youth in workshops.

All of our workshops are designed to enhance Alberta Learning Curriculum topics through exciting demonstrations, interactive experiments, and a fun hands-on activity. Workshops function as excellent unit introductions or reviews. View our workshop topics, or book a workshop today.

All we need is a regular classroom set-up with one or two tables at the front. DiscoverE instructors are university students who have been trained in classroom management, so we do not require any teaching or supervisory assistance: except of course from you, the teacher. We can accommodate a maximum of 32 students per workshop.

Price List

As we are a non-profit organization, all of our workshops are priced to be cost-recoverable. Only one workshop team is available from September to April. Multiple teams are available in May and June. Bursaries are available for schools in need. To apply for a bursary, please complete the Bursary Application Form. Please note our cancellation policy applies to all DiscoverE programs, including classroom workshop bookings.
