FALL TERM: KIDS CLASSES
From microbiology and DNA extractions to colour theory and Cézanne's Still Life paintings, every week we learn a new branch of science fused with a new style of art and take home a creative project based on the day's topic. How can you use a petri dish as a canvas? Become a great researcher in these science + art classes and find out.

As researchers on track towards great careers as innovative thinkers, it’s crucial to engage in hands-on experience. In this class, we’ll explore the field of Biological Art or “bioart,” an artistic discipline that takes inspiration from biology as material for artwork. Each week begins with a themed discussion highlighting collaborations between science and art. Topics range from microscopy and scientific imaging to ecology and genetics.
Monday (10 weeks) | 4:00 - 5:30 PM | Grades 4 - 6 | $300 + HST
Learn the scientific composition behind some of your favourite treats and play with food as materials for art making. Each week we engage in kitchen safe experiments or make delicious delights from scratch, which we sample in our laboratory kitchen. Our recipes cover edible paints, glow-in-the-dark Jell-o, chocolate playdough and “shaken, not stirred” sorbet.
Tuesday (12 weeks) | 4:00 - 5:00 PM | Ages 3 - 8 | $250 + HST
Have you wondered what knitting has to do with science, fishing, cyphers and gardening? Discover the the basics of knitting and create your own scarf and messenger bags, while exploring knitting-science connections through experimentation and hands on learning. Each week, students will have a project to take home and they will get to keep all of their knitting supplies at the end of the course.
