To maximize effective use of resources, Science North will travel to Northern regions once one or a group of schools have booked a minimum of 4 or 5 programming days. Science North staff will seek new clients in the area and your help in promoting the program to increase the length of stay in your community would be appreciated. All bookings are tentative until the week has been fully booked.
Requests can be made at anytime. Bookings are based on a first come, first served basis - all requests are considered, but not guarenteed. A signed booking contract is required to secure the date.
