Want to join the Club and get hands-on with STEM?


Simply choose what type of membership you want (Chapter, Virtual, or Combined) and purchase it through our website. All memberships last for one full year from the date of purchase. You can purchase your membership at any time of year and you will receive a full year of programming.

CAGIS plans a diversity of activities that focus on all areas of STEM including science, technology, trades, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Event topics have included Veterinary Science, Robotics, Firefighting, Coding, the Science of Ice Cream, and many more! No matter what the topic, all of our events include a hands-on activity and the opportunity to meet a real expert.

Yes, we offer both types of programming. Our Local Clubs (aka Chapters) organize monthly, in-person STEM events in a particular city. We have Chapter locations across Canada, so join the one nearest you. Our virtual program runs weekly, online STEM sessions that you can participate in from your home.

This project is supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
