To encourage scientific literacy throughout Alberta, ASN brings students and teachers together with trusted experts who share their real-life knowledge and experiences in a live, interactive format. We specialize in unique face-to-face interactions between volunteer scientists, engineers and technologists, and Alberta teachers and students.
Due to support from the Government of Alberta and generous donors, most of our programs are offered to schools at no cost.
