Energetic, fun and knowledgeable presenters lead interactive and stimulating hands-on science experiments in French; children are exposed to the language, learn about everyday science and realise that science is all around us, even where we don't expect it.
EXPLORUM strengthens the French language in a scientific context and helps students develop an interest in Science in a fun way.
EXPLORUM responds to the needs of Grade 1 to 7 teachers wanting to enrich their French curriculum with entertaining yet educational programs.
How EXPLORUM Came About
The founders of EXPLORUM are firm believers of bilingual education that covers a variety of school subjects as well as the child’s personal interest and social life.
They live in Toronto and realise how difficult it is for parents to find fun and engaging extracurricular activities in French for their children.
They decided to create EXPLORUM, an organisation that presents exciting and inspirational experiments to students in French.
The programs are now offered in French immersion, francophone and bilingual schools and camps across the GTA.
Clear & Fun
The presenters, who are fluent in French, love science and are great with kids! They explain science concepts in French, in a clear and entertaining way using appropriate scientific terms adapted to the age and the academic level of the children. They will also complement the workshop with a few English words when needed.
Exploration & Questioning
The experiments are varied and are adjusted to the science and French levels of the children. Each young “scientist” has his/her own workstation where he/she experiments under the direction of an EXPLORUM supervisor.
Students learn without realising it, by exploring and questioning.
Using a STEAM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) approach, EXPLORUM’s programs offer a fun and interactive supplement to the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum.
