Pre-Visit Information

To ensure a successful day, it is essential to review BOTH the Program Specific Information below AND the General Guidelines!


Program Specific Information

1. Organize students into groups of 4; maximum number of groups: 8. 

2. Before coming, remind students:

  • this program is not “an outing”, it is a “work day”
  • dress appropriately - as afternoon activities are completed “rain or shine”
  • good sidewalk etiquette is required - walking in pairs behind each other and leaving enough space on the sidewalk for other pedestrians
  • bring an extra bottle of water - no drinking fountains
  • all program materials, including pencils and clipboards, are provided

3. Students need to bring a packed lunch and a drink. Water only please, soft drinks and juice dehydrate students. TUSC is a Platinum EcoSchool - Waste - Free Lunches are expected!

4. ADULTS need three TTC fares: one to get to the TUSC lab, one to get to King Street between Jarvis and Church Street and one to get back to school. 12 years old and under travel for free on the TTC
