Scientists and Innovators in the Schools

Want to inspire students by becoming a STEM mentor?

Scientists and Innovators in Schools (SIS) is a volunteer-based program that helps address British Columbia's need for more scientists, engineers, technologists, technicians, creative technology professionals and innovators to promote students' interest in these areas. Their goal is to inspire students with exciting, in-school presentations by career mentors. The program is offered to Grades K–12 everywhere in BC.

In 2017/18, SIS volunteers visited over 300 schools in more than 100 communities across British Columbia, delivering free presentations to over 38,700 students. 

More volunteers in Northern BC are needed to combat the growing requests for SIS volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, please go to the SIS website or contact Jaclyn at


Scientists and Innovators in the Schools is organized and coordinated in partnership with Science World British Columbia:
