We’re looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year, and really hoping we get to see classes return to the lab in the fall. We’ll continue to monitor public health guidelines and school division policies as we determine a reopening plan in the coming months. This may be a mix of online/in-person/small cohort availability, and booking calendars will be available on this page once we have more clarity on what September looks like. Please follow us on social media for updates, or contact Steve Jones at for more information.


If you are one of our partnered school divisions*, please consult availability calendars and booking steps below. We do reserve limited spaces for independent schools and others outside of the divisional system, please contact Steve for more information.

* The Youth BIOlab runs in partnership with school divisions Manitoba listed below. We rely on this partnership model to sustain balanced access to the lab, meet divisional science needs and minimize costs to individual classrooms. Due to the overwhelming demand for programming at the Youth BIOlab, partnered school divisions have a set number of days in the school year for their schools and visits are coordinated to meet the needs of schools and teachers.
