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!
