CASN connects Scientist to the Community
Since 1998, CASN volunteers have given presentations to over 80,000 students, teachers and others donating over 12,500 hours presentation time, not to mention preparation and travel time. Our scientist and science experts visit classrooms to share their expertise and enthusiasm about their particular area of science with school students in Central Alberta. And in addition we make science resources (materials, kits and books) available to lend in classrooms.
CASN is a non-profit organization with objectives of being a leader in the promotion of scientific thinking and education in the Central Alberta area. CASN specifically targets the local formal education systems but also provide support and has activities for various other groups and ages. Approximately 100 volunteers in the Central Alberta area assist us with our programming. Many of the volunteers travel great distances to provide quality science programming and inspiration to many students and teachers in the rural area of Central Alberta
