Feedback from Host

March 12


Hello Manisha,


It was a huge success and went over very well with the teachers, the U of A people and the students. We appreciate the way Montana conducted themselves and they were very respectful and assisted and participated. ​Thank you for the opportunity.

Feedback from Volunteer coordinator

Hi Manisha,

Generally my volunteers and I had a positive experience delivering hands-on chemistry to the students of both schools. As I indicated to you, in future I would try to bring more volunteers to such a large event. Thanks again for this wonderful invitation!

Best regards,

Maskwacis Library spreads interest in Science

January 28, 2015


Hi! This is Alison Peoples. Both myself (grade 4/5 Mrs. Peoples) and (grade 5/6 Ms. Kimeda) would like to come and do something related to grade 5 chemistry as one group. There would be about 30 students and 4 staff. If possible so that it would take up the day and if you can accommodate us it would be great to do two experiments and participate in the other activities that were around last year like visiting the library and the COW bus.


Let me know,



Connection: March 11th science stations will be set up at the school for Grade 4-6.
