> CASC Members are supporting families and educators

As Canada moves into various stages of reopening, many of CASC Members continue to serve their communities by offering educational programming, resources and materials online.

Collectively these organizations reach 10 million people across Canada in person each year and reach this audience through 1.35 million accounts on social media.

Our sharing of accurate, reliable information has a significant impact.

Find them on social media for a steady stream of ideas for exploring science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) engagement.
