ASN's Impact


We invite you to read our Report to the Community for 2023!
ASN report to the community 2023

ASN programs help make learning science fun, whether it's Chemistry All Around You, Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom or Teacher Workshops there's something for all. We also offer many curriculum related science videos that are free for all schools.

Scientists & Engineers-in-the Classroom visits have resumed and we are now taking requests for classroom visits in the 2023-2024 school year.

Alberta Science Network was formed in 1991 to bring science to life for Alberta students and their teachers. Our signature program, Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom, inspires students with face-to-face, hands-on science presentations.

Do you remember the “best day ever!” of your elementary school experience? Was it spent learning science?

ASN believes that science can and should be that much fun. Our mandate is to bring science to life by providing unique face-to-face experiences between grades K-12 students and teachers and subject matter experts. By making science fun, we increase students’ interest in science, their understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts, and their knowledge of STEM careers. We also increase teachers’ understanding of science and provide them with hands-on ways to bring curriculum to life in their classrooms.

While the intermediate and long-term outcomes of our work are difficult to quantify, we know that increasing students’ interest in science is essential to increasing enrolment in high school and post-secondary STEM programs. Ensuring that our future workforce is scientifically literate, with the skills and knowledge needed for tomorrow’s job market, begins by getting kids excited about science, and providing teachers with the tools and information they need to teach science in a fun and innovative way.
