Community Science Clubs

Open to residents of Jane and Finch community, our Community Science Clubs are free of charge and offer hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Community Science Club curriculum is driven by the interests of the students. The first day will have a scheduled activity, and the Instructors will work with the students to determine which experiments interest them the most.

A Community Pick-up option from Driftwood Community Centre is available. Meet the Instructor at 4:00pm and they will escort you and your child(ren) to the York University Keele Campus.

On the first day of the All-Girl Community Science Club we will be finessing the art of extracting DNA from fruit to investigate how it looks and feels.

This information can be used to improve crops so that they are more resistant to disease, insect invasion or changes in climate.
