Inspiring students with free, in-school presentations by real scientists

Scientists and Innovators in the Schools (SIS) is a volunteer-based program that helps address British Columbia's need for more scientists, engineers, technologists and technicians to promote students' interest in these areas. Our goal is to inspire students with exciting, in-school presentations by real scientists. The program is offered to Grades K–12 everywhere in BC.

In 2016/17, 240 SIS volunteers visited 420 schools in 128 communities across British Columbia, delivering free presentations to over 35,000 students.
