Scientists and Innovators in Schools

 Scientists and Innovators in the Schools (SIS) is a volunteer-based program, coordinated by Science World, that helps address British Columbia's need for more scientists, engineers, technologists and technicians to promote students' interest in these areas. 

The goal is to inspire students with exciting, in-school presentations by real scientists. The program is offered to Grades K–12 everywhere in BC.

Scientist in Residence K - 7 Lesson Plans

The Scientist in Residence Program lesson plans are available to educators and the public. The lesson plans fit with the BC Ministry of Education guidelines for Science K to 7. These lesson plans, together with the enthusiastic students’ quest to know more and the experiences gained by elementary school teachers and scientists, are the legacies of the Scientist in Residence Program.

Scientists and teachers work together to develop and deliver science units comprised of hands-on lessons on specific themes. There is a major focus on the experimental process of science. Opportunities are created to link lessons to other areas of the curriculum, such as math, fine arts, English and French language arts, and First Nations. Some lessons focus on issues facing society such as marine pollution, climate change, soil erosion, biodiversity, and the importance of protecting the environment and ecosystems.
