About Us

Pueblo Science is a Toronto-based charity focused on advancing science education in low-resource communities in Canada and in developing countries.

Our combination of local and international programs is designed to engage young students and spark their interest in science through active, hands-on learning experiences, discovery, experimentation and problem-solving opportunities.
