X-CHEM OUTREACH COVID-19 STATEMENT
With the Covid-19 pandemic, X-Chem Outreach has currently ceased all in-person outreach work. X-Chem Outreach is abiding by all StFX University policies regarding the closure and limitation of programs. At this time, we hope to be able to offer our Summer 2020 camps both on campus as well as in local communities, and will follow all health protocols and guidelines set by StFX and Nova Scotia Public health to ensure our camps will be a safe, sanitary environment. Registration for camps is ongoing, with the payment of camp fees being on hold at this time.
We are monitoring the situation closely, and will update parents/guardians with any changes to our camp schedule.

Watch the following about XChem!
X-Chem is a multifaceted outreach program with over 20 years of experience engaging youth in science. Our goal has always been to inspire curiosity in youth and to stimulate an interest in science. We do this by providing children with an opportunity to do hands on science and to connect children to working scientists. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to take part in science; regardless of location, socio-economic status, or culture. This is why X-Chem Outreach brings science to children!
