Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom

Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom is our core program for students. Enthusiastic scientists, engineers and topic experts offer unique experiences for students that get them excited about science! Teachers learn from the presentations too, impacting future classes.

- ASN has recently learned that the Government of Alberta has cut our grant that supported our school programs (Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom, and Chemistry All Around You).
- In order to continue to offer SEitC and CAAY presentations, the ASN Board of Directors finds it necessary to introduce a user fee of $125 per classroom presentation (comparable with similar science outreach organizations) effective July 1st, 2021.
- We will continue to use the same online request process and payment details will be sent to teachers as presentations are confirmed.
