Engage Teens During COVID-19
LiveSTEAMs are live virtual field trips for teens to explore how Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math* come to life in the real world.
Schools are live streamed inside dynamic companies addressing today’s challenges. Teens explore operational sites and interact with the experts developing vaccines for COVID-19, using AI to optimize robotics, converting
forestry waste into biofuels and more.
*Geography and contemporary world bridge STEM and the arts, which includes Language Arts.
Connect from anywhere
Teens at home and in class can participate simultaneously and learn together

SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Heather Mcpherson, Phd
Sir Wilfrid Laurier
"You provided a field trip that extends the curriculum and incorporates active learning with technology and science, reinforcing what we’ve done all year, and engaging kids who we are losing. Students who I hadn’t heard from since the beginning of this crisis logged on!"
Centre de services scolaire de Montréal
"E2 Adventures is the only organisation in Quebec that links math, science and technology courses with behind-the-scenes visits to the industrial world, where engineering and R&D come to life. They succeed in transforming the real world into a classroom. Their programs are an essential part of the high school curriculum."
"I think it’s important for students to realize what’s going on in society, and not just stay closed in their four walls at home. The more they are informed, the more they experience, despite the fact that they are behind their screens, it’s a value-added education."
Centre de services scolaire Marguerite Bourgeoys
"Industry field trips have allowed me to think like an engineer and encourage my students to write about global issues and analyze them from systems perspectives. I firmly believe it is essential to provide more field trips in STEM for Quebec’s schools. The world is changing very fast, and teachers are still using examples from the 20th century."
Amy R., 12 years old
"It was amazing, and very interactive!”
John G., 14 years old
"I was surprised to see that companies were contributing to help with the pandemic in their own ways."
Jill T., 15 years old
“We were not just students sitting behind a screen; we were truly on a field trip.”
Alex R., 14 years old
"Students don't usually get to see things like that because it would be hard to bring a class in. Thank you for letting us be a part of this great experience!"
