K-12 Resources

The SFU Science in Action program brings K–12 students from the greater Vancouver community to our Burnaby campus for hands-on workshops run by our dedicated roster of volunteers.

Over 60 free workshops to choose from

Over 15,000 students participated on our programs in 2018/2019
Last year we reached 10 school districts, countless community groups, home learners and STEM organizations
We offer workshops in French!

Science in Action 

Our faculty open our labs to thousands of K-12 learners throughout the school year. These free workshops provide a great opportunity to experience a post-secondary setting and to get a close and personal look at what research entails.

Online & Virtual K-12 lessons

These resources are available for parents and teachers to download as lessons or after school activities. We've included an array of science lessons at various grade levels that work with BC's new learning curriculum.

Workshops for Educators

These workshops are designed to help K-12 educators make their science lessons fun and engaging! These free workshops are offered either virtually or on Pro D days. 

Volunteer or Donate

Our free programs are made possible with the generous help from our community. If you wish to help keep our programs operating, consider making a donation or volunteering if you are an SFU student. 

Let's Talk Science

The SFU branch of this national program supports free, K-12 science education in classrooms in BC. SFU student volunteers are available to bring STEM activities to your classroom, homeschool group or community organization.
