Bring your class to the University of Guelph

It's one thing to watch a video or see a demo– it's an entirely different experience for your grade school class to fully immerse themselves in a scientific lab or other environment. Teachers, arrange to bring your students to campus during the school year so they can experience an authentic scientific experience and learn about applied and traditional sciences. If you want to visit the labs, the best days will be at the end of December and April when no undergraduate labs are scheduled. Below are a few special days designed for teachers to bring their students:
