Programs

Science for Kids in French

Children cultivate their interest in science while improving their French language skills.

One-of-a-Kind Concept

Using a STEAM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) approach, EXPLORUM’s experiments offer a fun and interactive supplement to the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum.

Students explore, question and have fun... Actually, they learn without realising it. Under the constant direction of an EXPLORUM supervisor, each young scientist has his/her own material with which he/she experiments.
