STEAM Ecosystem BC

STEAM Ecosystem BC is a non-profit learning ecosystem comprised of a network of diverse collaborators from education, technology, science, the arts and business sectors in British Columbia, working together to ensure all learners have equal access to educational resources and opportunities.

Genome BC

Genome BC’s Geneskool will be sharing with students how proteins are made from information stored in DNA, using a triplet code of “codons”, the students will spell their name with the DNA code by making a bracelet in which 1 amino acid “letter” is converted into 3 DNA “letters”. The Geneskool team will also be extracting DNA live from fruit. Following a simple protocol in the correct sequence, students will be able to directly see DNA from fruit!

Open Science Network

Vancouver’s only community science lab will have activities suitable for all ages.

Building Electronic Circuits with TRIUMF


TRIUMF (Canada’s national accelerator centre) specializes in accelerating particles to near-light speeds for basic scientific research. Many types of electronic circuits are used to achieve this high-energy acceleration. Here, in our STEAMing Ahead activity, we offer opportunities for kids, youth, and young adults to safely create their own electronic circuits with analogies to systems used at TRIUMF. We provide simple activities alongside our expert physicists to create “light-up LED” circuits with batteries, resistors, wires, and LEDs. We also demonstrate more advanced circuits with capacitors, diodes, and how to use multimeters and oscilloscopes to measure electrical properties and understand the flow of electrons in circuits. Hands-on “experimental” physics of this kind is critical for young people in today’s ultra-high-tech world.
