Earth Sciences Elementary School Outreach Program

Earth Sciences Outreach offers the opportunity for hands-on learning in our undergraduate teaching labs (TASC-1 Building, rooms 7005 / 7011). We can accommodate classes of up to 24 students.  Please note that the labs are used for teaching so workshops are limited, and vary from semester to semester.  

Primary classes (K through Grade 3) will enjoy a one-hour visit to the lab which will be chock-full of fun Earth Sciences materials to view, touch, and use.

Intermediate classes (Grades 4-7) are offered 1 to 1.5-hour  topic-based workshops and activities centred on: mineral identification, the rock cycle & rock identification, and fossils & geologic time.

If you are interested in either of these workshops, contact Eileen van der Flier-Keller at
