Good News for Elementary and High-School Science Teachers!
The Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations (QFHSA) wishes to encourage tomorrow’s scientists by supporting today’s students in developing and nurturing an interest in science.
By providing science experiment materials/equipment to elementary and secondary schools through our Youth Exploring Science program, QFHSA hopes to encourage science activities proposed by science educators.
We are extending an invitation to science teachers to propose a science activity they would like to conduct with their students in the 2020-2021 school year and submit it to us. The chosen proposals will receive up to $1000 in equipment/materials with which to conduct the experiment/activity, be it a Rocket or Entomology Clubs, Horticulture or Physical Dynamics activities. Looking for inspiration? Read below to find out how three high schools used their grants last year.
You can find the 2020-2021 Proposal Form here. On the form, you will need to write a description and outline of the project, the number of students likely to be involved, and a detailed list of equipment/materials required for the project. Bear in mind the possibility of material needed to be worked with in students’ homes should lockdowns be imposed again.
Proposals should be sent as soon as possible to:
Carol Meindl, Youth Exploring Science

Montreal, QC H4B 2L9
Teachers know best what activities will interest their students the most. We look forward to playing a role in getting your students excited about science.
