Offering fun, scientific and adapted activities
it’s part of what we do!

Science workshops

Introduce kids to the world of science with our initiation workshops at the Électrium and Beauharnois generating station. Aimed at children ages 6 to 12, the workshops led by Les neurones atomiques explore a range of scientific topics in fun and educational ways.

Share stimulating moments with your budding scientists during March break or the winter holidays, on Mondays during the summer and on Saturdays in October and February. It’s an experience that will stay with them forever.

Best of all, the workshops are free! Join us for an unforgettable scientific adventure!

Tours for visitors on the autism spectrum

In partnership with Autisme Laval, the Électrium along with Beauharnois and Rivière‑des‑Prairies generating stations have created tours for families, kids and adults tailored to the needs of visitors on the autism spectrum.

Whether you or your child is neurodiverse, you’re invited to tour our facilities! Our guides have had training from Autisme Laval to provide simple and concise instructions, and using pictograms. There’s a calm corner available, and accompanying adults are always welcome.

Come and enjoy an enriching experience designed especially for you!
