We are excited to announce that we are now the Alberta Science Network!
Our mission remains to bring science to life for kids across Alberta through hands-on activities and to provide educators with tools and resources to get kids excited about science. Our vision is a world where Alberta students are inspired by science and have fun discovering its relevance to everyday life.
We have a new name, but our programs and services in Calgary will remain as strong as ever. Formed through a merger of the Calgary Science Network and the Alberta Science Literacy Association, the Alberta Science Network is building on a foundation that has been uniquely Albertan for more than 20 years. Our volunteers have reached hundreds of thousands of students across the province during this time, sharing their passion for science. And now, we can reach even more students outside of the Calgary region!
Under our new structure, our focus will remain on providing unique face-to-face experiences between subject matter experts and students/teachers. Thanks to support from the Government of Alberta, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta and numerous corporate donors, our in-classroom programs remain free for teachers and we continue to engage hundreds of volunteers in the delivery of our programs.
Please visit our new website at www.albertasciencenetwork.ca to become part of our exciting future.
