Science Education

Science at SCCC

Scadding Court’s Science Learning Integrated into Community Environments (SLICE) initiative is about exposure to, learning about and participating in scientific thinking and activities. We aim to:

  • Present science in a relevant, fun, hands-on, interactive way
  • Integrate science education into many of our programs  
  • Encourage children and youth to explore science/engineering as career options
  • Increase the scientific literacy of the general public

Some of the ways that we do this are:

  • After-school Science Clubs
  • Science workshops in child and youth programs
  • An interactive science wall in our lobby
  • Community science fair
  • Special projects like Gone Fishin’ - our annual indoor trout pond
  • Using our website to make user-friendly ‘slices of science’ available to the public
