In 2003, the EOCF introduced ICE School (In Class Education) or as students call it, Incredibly Cool Education!  ICE School is one of Edmonton’s Inquiry Minds Sites which allow students to bring real world understanding to what they study during the school year. With the assistance of a program coordinator, a week of hands-on, learner led, inquiry based learning is developed incorporating site facilities and the provincial curriculum.  For an entire week students engage  in reading, writing, observing, interviewing and calculating activities in the ICE School classroom, Rexall Place and other fascinating places around Northlands Park.

The 2013-14 school year brings 25 classes from grades 1 to 9 from the Edmonton Pubic, Edmonton Catholic, St. Albert Public and Elk Island School Boards.

ICE School is one of the Inquiring Minds sites in Edmonton. For more information about these programs click here.
