Science

Science is cool with EXPLORUM!

EXPLORUM gives your children the chance to become young scientists for the day in a fun environment. By entering the world of chemistry, biology or physics, they will better understand the world that they live in!

Most of our hands-on workshops are based on the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) approach to learning. The experiments offer a fun yet educational complement to the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum.

Students explore, question and have fun… Actually, they learn without noticing. Under the constant supervision of an EXPLORUM leader, each young scientist carries out the experiment of the day with safe scientific materials and equipment.

With more than 50 experiments, adaptable to your needs and to the ages/grade of the students, you will surely find workshops to stimulate the children and get them interested in science.

Cooking

Your students are going to eat, why not let them make their own food?

The young cooks learn the culinary rules starting with basics of food hygiene and kitchen safety. Weighing, measuring and calculating amounts adds a zest of math and science to the program. In addition to cuisine, children will be introduced to the notion of a balanced diet.

Students will learn to make traditional French cuisine (crêpes, quiche, chocolate mousse, macaron, croque-monsieur…) as well as international foods they love (pizza, hummus, fresh pasta, sorbets, smoothies…). They will love eating their creations and reproducing them at home with the recipe book they will create.

After the cooking, comes the tasting! Each workshop gives them the opportunity to relax, stimulate their taste buds and learns manners at the table.

The adventure doesn’t stop at cooking… learning to do the dishes is part of the experience!
