Summer science camps coming up

  • Jul. 4, 2008 8:00 p.m.

Submitted by Angie Elliott and Kerry Kwan-The super-cool science geeks are coming back to Haida Gwaii this summer! The Science Alive instructors (a.k.a. super-cool science geeks) are ready for four upcoming weeks of summer camp. The camps are available for two age groups: junior camp for students who have just finished grade 2 to grade 4, and seniors camp for students who have just finished grade 5 to grade 7. Campers will explore the dynamic worlds of science, engineering and technology. Hands-on activities, interactive demonstrations and take-home projects are the focus of all Science Alive programs. Projects include building your own operation game, engineering a submarine, and creating robotic penguins. Campers will also be working on team challenges, such as collecting and observing air-borne grime and lifting heavy materials. Camps will be held at A.L. Mathers school in Sandspit July 14-18; at the Masset community hall July 21-25; at Port Clements elementary Aug. 11-15; and at Sk’aadgaa Naay elementary in Skidegate Aug. 18-22. This is Science Alive’s eighth year of science education programs on Haida Gwaii. In June, over 400 kids participated in our classroom workshops. We are excited to be working with the Gwaii Trust, A.L. Mathers Elementary, the Village of Masset, Port Clements Elementary, Sk’aadgaa Naay Elementary, and School District 50 this summer, and know that without their support we could not offer the programs that we do. The cost is $50 per child. Registration forms and other information are available at the Science Alive website www.sciencealive.caBursaries are available, please contact Science Alive at sciencealive@sfu.ca or call 778-782-5912.
