About DE

Our mission

To provide youth with positive, interactive, educational, and social learning experiences that promote science, technology, teamwork, and leadership. The Ultimate Goal of the program is to provide participants with experiences that create self-awareness of their abilities and the enjoyment they find in STEAM as a base for life-long learning.

We deliver interactive classroom workshops, exciting summer camps, engaging Friday after-school Science Clubs, birthday parties, and numerous other outreach programs and special events. Our programs have been growing steadily since they originated in 2002, and now reach over 4,500 youth each year in Lethbridge and its surrounding areas.
