Eurêka! School Tour

2021 : A REDEFINED AND PHYSICALLY-DISTANCED EDITION!

Presented by

 

 

Since field trips will likely be impossible this year and students will be deprived of fun and educational outings, Eurêka! is proposing to bring a streamlined version of the Festival to schools! From October 19th to November 19th 2021, a free and festive scientific program will be offered to a dozen schools in the Greater Montreal region (priority will be given to schools in disadvantaged neighbourhoods). *Presentations in French only*

Initially scheduled to visit 10 Montreal-area schools in the spring, the Eurêka! Festival school tour has been posponed due to ongoing health situation. Aimed at 2nd and 3rd cycle elementary students, the tour has been rescheduled for the fall (tentative dates: October 19 to Novembre 19, 2021).

Schools selected for the spring tour will be contacted on a priority basis at the start of the 2021-2022 school year. 

 

Here’s what we’re proposing for 2021


A mini-Eurêka! adapted to public health measures (respecting class bubbles) in your school’s gymnasium.

On the menu: 90 minutes of activities, demos and shows in STEM (science, technology, engineering & math), including a component aimed at initiating kids to topics related to digital skills.
