We’ve created an updated version of our Activity Book that includes 23 exciting experiments and activities from many different departments and agencies within the Government of Canada. This new version accommodates different age groups and skill levels as the experiments and activities are tailored for different levels of difficulty and understanding. This is a great way to encourage everyone to challenge their inner scientist.

The Activity Books were assembled by the team responsible for Science.gc.ca - the official Government of Canada website for Science and Technology information and resources.
