Our Mission

Our mission is to ignite curiosity and foster creativity in young minds through hands-on, multidisciplinary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) workshops delivered in French. We believe in providing engaging and accessible educational experiences that inspire a lifelong love for learning. We hope to shape tomorrow's leaders, innovators, and changemakers, one workshop at a time.

Our Vision

We envision a future that integrates the beauty of the French language with the multidisciplinary STEAM learning approach where education is not only informative but also transformative and not only valued but celebrated for its ability to shape confident, creative, and culturally-aware individuals.

Our Approach

Energetic, fun and knowledgeable presenters lead interactive and stimulating hands-on science experiments that make kids realise that science is all around us, even where we don't expect it; culinary workshops where they concoct recipes from all over the world and DIY multi-disciplinary artistic projects where they create and build decorative or useful items.

All workshops can be presented in either French or English; children are exposed to the language, learn new skills and have fun in the process.

EXPLORUM responds to the needs of grade 1 to 6 teachers wanting to enrich their French curriculum with entertaining yet educational programs.

How EXPLORUM Came About

The founders of EXPLORUM are staunch advocates of bilingual, multi-disciplinary education, recognizing its capacity to ignite curiosity and cater to the diverse interests of children. Having navigated the challenge of finding engaging extracurricular activities in French for their own children while living in Toronto, they resolved to address this gap by establishing EXPLORUM. This organization pioneers exciting and inspirational workshops designed to captivate young minds. Today, their programs are widely embraced within French immersion, francophone, and bilingual schools and camps across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), enriching the educational landscape with opportunities for linguistic and interdisciplinary exploration.

EXPLORUM embodies a unique blend of adaptability and excellence, distinguishing itself as a dynamic educational resource. As a small-scale organization, EXPLORUM prides itself on its ability to tailor workshops precisely to meet the needs and preferences of both students and schools. This flexibility enables it to swiftly respond to evolving educational trends and individual student requirements, ensuring a personalized and enriching learning experience for all.

However, despite its modest size, EXPLORUM maintains a commitment to delivering high-quality workshops that exceed expectations. Central to its approach is the seamless integration of French language immersion with the principles of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), fostering a holistic learning environment that nurtures both linguistic fluency and creative problem-solving skills. In each hands-on workshop, students are encouraged to explore, experiment, and create, with the freedom to work at their own pace.

This emphasis on experiential learning not only cultivates a deep understanding of concepts but also empowers children to take ownership of their learning journey, ensuring that they leave each session with tangible results and a newfound sense of accomplishment.
