Workshops

During the months of May and June,  Discovery Western offers workshops for elementary and secondary schools. The focus of these workshops is to increase the awareness and enjoyment of science and engineering while complementing the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum. Energetic DW instructors travel across Southwestern Ontario to provide workshops to children in Grades K-8.
