Students Reached

Over 500,000 students have been reached during MOF’s 10 year experiment to catalyze adolescent exploration and learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and to address the issue of declining enrollment in STEM post-secondary programs. These students were engaged in hands-on exploration in the classroom, supported by new infrastructure investments, stimulated by field explorations beyond the classroom, inspired through career discovery visits, and mentored by peers, educators and industry experts with new teaching practices and collaborative learning environments.



20% of all BC students have been impacted by Odyssey enrichment programs (in our target range of age 10 – 14 years old). These students continue to benefit from the legacy of Odyssey funding support through the STEM investments in new technology, lab equipment, innovative teaching practices, and career connections in the school community.



Almost 60% of all school districts in BC have a least one Odyssey funded school program. These programs act as a catalyst to create a STEM learning ecosystem in the school community, across each school district and within the Odyssey network in BC. There were also 4 schools in Ontario during the pilot phase that helped shape the program effectiveness.



Students Participated in Career Discovery

Over 10,000 students participated in the Career Discovery program during 225 visits to 120 organizations including leading technology innovation companies, research organizations and post-secondary institutes. Students connected with engineers, scientists, tech experts and business leaders in actual work environments, to see first hand what a career in STEM can accomplish.


“Wild About Science”

Odyssey Symposium

All students benefit when their teachers participated in the annual Odyssey Symposium for professional development, to showcase Odyssey programs and to develop new resources to take back into the classroom. Educators from across the Odyssey network connected, worked together collaboratively and then acted as catalysts back in their school and schools districts – to share their innovative teaching practices.


79 Schools Across 34 Districts

The Mitchell Odyssey Foundation leveraged its funding investments strategically to transform 21st century education and personalized learning through innovative practices that inspire STEM engagement in 79 school communities throughout BC.  The Mitchell Odyssey Foundation positively impacted and engaged over 50,000 students annually across grades 7 – 12 with innovative, hands-on STEM learning, and inspired new teaching practices amongst educators.
