DiscoverE

In-School Clubs

Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 Applications will open on May 1, 2020!

Looking for a STEM extra-curricular program to offer at your school? Our in-school clubs focus on working with schools in the Edmonton area to give students the opportunity to experience the excitement of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through fun, interactive hands-on activities and challenges. School clubs 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.

We have two types of clubs in the Edmonton area - General Engineering and Coding. Clubs can be two-hour After School Clubs or one-hour Lunch Clubs. Clubs are 8 consecutive weeks in length with an optional, free of charge 9th week on-campus field trip (schools must arrange transportation and supervision, DiscoverE will provide the fun!). Clubs are available for Grades 1-12 and each individual club has a maximum capacity of 25 students. 

Engineering Club

This club is an opportunity for participants to experience the excitement of science and engineering through a wide variety of interactive hands-on activities. Participants will learn about various fields of science with projects and challenges ranging from guided-inquiry problems to open-inquiry free-designs. With the mentorship of our undergraduate student instructors, participants will develop skills and attitudes that will allow them to become scientifically literate citizens.

Coding Club

This club will engage participants with various computer programming languages such as Scratch or Python. Previous coding or technical experience is not necessary, as participants will build on technology fundamentals throughout the program. Chromebooks or desktop computers are required to effectively run our coding club.
