We are now taking limited bookings for in-person BIOlab experiences again (grades 8-12, 20 students maximum). We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and school division policies and maintain a safe space for science learning! We know classes and schools are navigating the current situation in different ways, and we are also happy to support classroom learning with virtual lab sessions. Please get in touch!
It’s All About Me
Partnering with our community: It’s All About Me (IAAM)
Running in parallel with Youth BIOlab programming, It’s All About Me is a unique partnership with the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) that brings programming into schools across the LRSD in English and French. The development of It’s All About Me in 2005 marked the beginning of the Research Centre’s formal outreach efforts, and this partnership model formed the basis for all of our work with schools and the development of the Youth BIOlab.
The name of this program, It’s All About Me, reflects the idea that the health science and medicine in the hospital and Research Centre have a personal connection to students and their science learning.
Programming mirrors elements of Youth BIOlab programming and is continually developed with classroom teachers. Meghan Kynoch coordinates the It’s All About Me programming, including in-school and Youth BIOlab visits for LRSD classes.
Although COVID-19 prevents in-school visits for the 2021-22 school year, we would be pleased to arrange online activities or demonstrations with your class where possible.
