CAGIS Virtual

Teenage high school girls doing chemistry experiment at home.

CAGIS Virtual is a new program that brings STEM into your home with fun, weekly, hands-on, live sessions led by real experts and a CAGIS instructor!

Each session includes an introduction to the topic, a hands-on or virtual activity, and time for questions at the end.

CAGIS Virtual sessions are open to non-members for $16 per session.  Registration will be open to members before the general public.

Did you know you can purchase tickets to CAGIS Virtual sessions as a gift? Available here.  


Upcoming events will be posted at least one month in advance.  Members will have access to event sign up links before the general public.  We expect to always have enough space for all sign ups.  However, in the event of a very popular event, spaces will go on a first-come-first-served basis with others added to a waiting list.  Registration deadline is 30 minutes prior to start of the event. The schedule is subject to change, pending changes in host availability.

Saturday May 28 – DIY Bath Bombs

Get ready for fizzy fun: we are making bath bombs! It often takes more than six months and a team of chemists to develop personal care products. We will make bath bombs while learning about product development and the chemistry behind these fizzy products!

Preparation for 2 bath bombs: baking soda (1 cup), citric acid (3/4 cup), cornstarch (2/3 cup), water, measuring cups (1/4 cup, 1/3 cup), gloves, clean surface to work on, silicone molds (or cookie cutters with plastic wrap or small bowl with tin foil). Optional: Epson salt (1 cup), food colouring.

Expert: Lexie Griffith is a cosmetic chemist whose work involves formulating cosmetics and personal care products.

Ages 7-12: 11 am ET. Members (free), Non-members ($16). Sign up here.
