Is it any wonder Toronto is a big hit with science students? Students will experiment with their need for adventure and get to the nucleus of their science needs. Students need to put their best lab coats on, Toronto is waiting.
Where else is better to start your scientific tour of Toronto than the Ontario Science Centre. The science centre is the spiritual home of Toronto’s science scene and you can see why. With 52 million visitors flocking to the doors since 1969 they must be doing something right, right? In the evening take your group to Niagara Falls, a national treasure that mixes Physics and land formations whilst ticking off one of North America’s most sought-after tourist attractions.
Biology fans, this is for you. High Park is Toronto’s largest public park and is the perfect place to learn about plant life, the life cycle and animal species all within one lush area. The park is also home to High Park Zoo, here your students can roam through the park while learning about the animals that call the zoo their home. In the evening students will take part in a topical discussion at the Royal Canadian Institute of Science (RCIS) and learn from some of the best in the business.
If you have a group of younger students then we have the perfect place for you. The Science Technology Engineering Art Math (STEAM) has a range of fun activities including building motorized Lego creations and fun science experiments to keep the students engaged while they learn about the world of Science. The Toronto Public Library hosts several free scientific classes every month including “Brain health” and “birds take flight” that will have your students wanting more!
In the morning, your group will head to the university college and attend a Science for peace presentation about a current scientific topic, presented by an expert in their field. For the groups final day, your group must end it on a high note at the CN Tower, it is the perfect showstopper for your group. If they’re feeling brave they can also take part in the CN Tower Edge Walk and get the complete 360-degree view of Toronto.
