For students and teachers

Youth at OICR

The goal of OICR’s engaging youth programs is to connect with high school students and teachers throughout Ontario to generate excitement and interest in cancer research. Through these programs, students and teachers can experience what it is like to be a cancer researcher.

OICR offers a wide range of engaging opportunities – from class field trips to internships and virtual visits from our scientists – to enrich the school curriculum. Through these experiences, we hope to expand student awareness and understanding of cancer research work and career options, and encourage youth to develop their academic and career interests in cancer research.
