Get kids excited about science with hands-on FUNshops for smaller groups. FUNshops explore a specific topic in science with lots interactive elements. They'll be having so much fun they won't realize they are learning!

Preschool-Level FUNshops

Our preschool-level workshops offer hands-on learning experiences for kids ages 3-4. Each one is an age-appropriate exploration of a single science topic, like air, animals, weather, and worms. Kids enjoy engaging demos, perform simple experiments, and discover how science helps us understand our world.

All About Our FUNshops


What if I have more than 25 kids?

Although there are some topics that can squeeze extra kids in, the hands-on nature of the FUNshops means that there is only so much equipment to go around. We want to be sure your kids get the full experience. Ask us about options at the time of booking.


Am I in the local area? What is the travel charge?

40km of travel is covered in the basic price, so programs in the St Catharines/Niagara Falls/Beamsville/Welland area don't have to worry about a travel charge. For farther away locations we charge $0.37/km for the additional distance.


Does everyone always take something home from a Funshop?

Yes! A take-home activity is part of every FUNshop program. Most of the time, the item is built during the program. In some FUNshops, the activity requires no assembly and will be given to the children at the end of the FUNshop.


How long in advance do I need to book?

We recommend 4-6 weeks before your event date in order to make sure that the time and topics you want are available

Our scientist was fun and engaging and had enough animation talking to the kids to keep their attention, without being too over the top. The presentation was simple enough to keep our 3-4 year olds engaged and learning!
