Press Release: dHL & Scientists in Schools Collaborative Partnership

Digital Human Library and Scientists in School are proud to announce a new partnership that will bring Scientists in School’s new Spotlight with Scientists in School STEM Career Video Series and Expert Scientists to even more classrooms across Canada.

“The goal of the partnership is to engage schools and districts in the new livestream programs being offered by Scientists in School, while at the same time providing classes with the opportunity to connect with Scientists in Schools’ Expert presenters through Digital Human Library,” explains Leigh Cassell, Founder and CEO at dHL. “We are thrilled to be hosting these new virtual live programs to further support youth and learning.”

“Scientists in School is excited to partner with Digital Human Library to bring fun, engaging and hands-on STEM experiences to children and youth,” says Cindy Adams, Executive Director at Scientists in School. “Inspiring children to think critically, dream big and have confidence in their STEM skills is more important than ever.”

Last spring Leigh Cassell’s Kindergarten class participated in a Sticky Science workshop generously donated by Scientists in School. Prior to the workshop, individual Mini Science Bags were packaged and shipped to her school. During the 60-minute virtual STEM adventure, Cassell’s students used their observations, learned how to make stickers and glue, and explored different mixtures as they experimented with substances and liquids to form putty. Today they’re scientists in school, tomorrow they’re our leaders and innovators.

Scientists in School’s Virtual Workshops are available to K-8 Canadian schools, after-school programs, libraries, and children and youth across Canada. For more information, including how to book a workshop or register for a program, please visit
