Introducing Science FUNdamentals: Calgary Chapter

This year, we are hoping to grow Science FUNdamentals as a fixture in the University of Calgary community to serve elementary students in Calgary and provide the students at UofC with a meaningful volunteering opportunity that fosters interest in STEM fields for young children. With guidance from the Vice President of SciFUN UAlberta, the SciFUN UofC executive team is currently providing classroom programming, having reached over forty classrooms in Winter 2021. We are not bringing Science FUNday to UofC yet, but are in discussion to do so sometime in the future.
