“This has taken me less time to plan, but I’ve spend more time teaching this unit.”

~ Ashley Barrington, Fort McMurray Public School District, Fort McMurray, AB

“This unit definitely has saved me lots of time.  It is very complete.  Normally this is the unit that we have the least resources for.”

~ Lily Ma, Winterburn Elementary, Edmonton, AB

“The Ignition Pack gives the kids who don’t get out into nature, the ability to see it.”

~ Shannon Marissen, Greely Road Public School, Fort McMurray, AB

“I was fortunate to have piloted the grade five Wetlands Science unit. I was very impressed with the "at home" feel of the unit. It was accurate to Alberta wetlands/climate and environmental concerns. The specific nature of the lessons and especially the wonderful videos engaged students. They were focused and excited about the next Wetland activity that was available. It was wonderful to have such a variety of hands on experiments, beautiful cards relating to the plants and animals of Alberta's wetlands and discussion starters. My students were thrilled with this unit. The support from MindFuel was amazing!”

~ Marvilyn Armstrong, Mountain Park School, Calgary, AB

Bringing science to life without electrodes and lightning...
Well, sometimes without electrodes and lightning.

Wondering what happened to the Science-in-a-Crate Program? We took it back to the lab, went back to the drawing board, and are excited to unveil a brand new program…

Developed and tested by teachers for teachers, Ignition Packs contain all the resources you need to teach a full unit of science for grades 4 through 9.


Each Ignition Pack Includes

  • hands-on activities
  • relevant real-world videos
  • teacher-driven interactive presentations
  • all the above items are complemented by exciting demonstrations that bring lessons to life in unexpected, engaging and most importantly, fun ways.

But wait. We're not done yet! We have also included a suite of assessment tools developed in conjunction with leading assessment experts. Because scientific accuracy is paramount to our program we incorporated a rigorous review of all content by subject matter experts during development.

One Size Fits All? Not here! Because you have a diversity of learners in your classroom, Ignition Packs offer a choice of resources targeted for different learning styles. And the resources are designed to promote scientific literacy and to support 21st century learning.

Our goal is to deliver compelling resources that teachers can use to teach science in the most engaging way possible, while reducing teacher prep time. Many Ignition Packs are available, and even more are being developed.  To see where Ignition Packs are being used click here.
