VIDEO: A quick look at the impact of our community science clubs on participants and volunteers! Check out the longer mini-doc feature here. Special thanks to Toronto Community Housing for funding through the Youth Action Grant.
Think that we only do science clubs? Wrong! We also run a STEM mentorship program at Nelson Mandela Park Public School in Regent Park. We support a group of students to complete science fair projects and facilitate a partnership with grad students from Ryerson. Today we met with half of the team and discussed the big ideas that they wanted to explore...we look forward to see how their story unfolds! Make sure to keep up with them on our YouTube channel. Subscribe at the link in our bio. We will also be blogging on our website! #NMPPS #STEM #thefutureofscience #VoSmentorship #welovetheclubstoo

Too ecstatic to starting our 2015/2016 year with both returning veteran and fresh faces.
Tell your friends, family and loved ones about this amazing movement. See you all SATURDAY! #getit #visionsofscience #VOS
Never be afraid to learn discover explore and innovate within new and uncomfortable boundaries. The human brain is the greatest asset you will ever own, don't be afraid to push its limits!
