Welcome Students and Educators
We are very excited to showcase the many hands-on learning opportunities that Calgary’s youth can experience as they develop their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills. We offer a uniquely diverse programs and workshops for students ages 6-18 years old. There is no other facility that offers the same type of educational option (with a wide variety of state-of-the-art learning equipment) focused on guiding young scientists, engineers, and technicians to discover their passion and grow their knowledge base.
We offer several flexible programs that are custom tailored to your students’ educational needs. Below are some samples of our course offering. Contact us for more options for your class or students.
STEM In Your School
Roots 2 STEM is pleased to bring our STEM education program directly to your school. We will work with your teachers to structure STEM lessons suitable for your curriculum and your classroom setting. Students will receive project instructions from a professional engineer who will inspire young minds in a variety of STEM disciplines.
Fieldtrips to Our Lab
Another option for your school is our “discover Your Inner Engineer” program where students experience a variety of STEM assignments at our workshop. It is the first program of its kind in North America in terms of the skills it teaches and the individualized approach to STEM projects. With up to 15 workstations packed with hands-on engineering capabilities, students will experience several disciplines and projects in our 4,000 sq.ft. laboratory.
Our Capstone Engineering Academy education program includes STEM education designed to take students step-by-step through the techniques and skills introducing them to science and engineering. Using math, technology, creativity and innovation to problem solve in the real world, these courses will introduce students to a greater understanding of the STEM disciplines.
Home learned students now have access to our Lab of Discovery with a professional engineering instructor providing STEM education with hands-on projects.
