Welcome to Actua In the North

Actua is committed to providing life-changing experiences in science, engineering and technology that inspire ALL youth to achieve their potential and fulfill their critical role in the world.

To this end, we have invested heavily, over the past ten years, in building strong relationships with Northern communities, returning year after year with dynamic, locally and culturally relevant programming for youth. We strive to work with local community volunteers and Elders to ensure that our programming meets the specific needs of youth in their particular region. We deliver school workshop and summer day camps - all with the goal of making sense of the science of every day life, and connecting youth to the many amazing related career opportunities that exist for them.

We invite you to explore these pages to learn more about our unique approach to educational outreach for Northern youth, our many valued local community partnerships, and the exciting programming that we offer.
