Book a Session
Would you like to book a CAGIS Virtual session for your group?
By popular demand, some of the favourite CAGIS Virtual sessions are now available to come to your school or group, online.
Each session is 1 hour in length and run by an expert in science, technology, trades, engineering, or math (STEM), along with a certified teacher.
These fun sessions begin with an interactive presentation, followed by a virtual or hands-on activity, and finish with a summary and time for questions. Our presenters have experience with students of all ages. Most sessions can be adapted to any elementary or high school age group.

Seed Germination Challenge
Have you ever wondered how large trees grow from tiny seeds? Did you know that different seeds can require very different conditions to germinate? After an interactive presentation, participants will prepare seeds for germination and track root growth in the days following the session. Elements of experimental design and the scientific method are introduced to older participants.
Preparation: each participant will need a small ziplock bag and sheet of paper towel for each seed type, water to dampen the paper towel, and seeds. Participants can have one kind of seed, or multiple kinds of seeds. The seeds can be purchased in a garden centre or found in the kitchen (e.g. dried beans, popcorn). We recommend that each participant has 3 to 5 seeds of each type.
Expert: Sara Stricker is a plant scientist and PhD candidate at the Ontario Agricultural College at the University of Guelph.
