Science Explorations, a fun, hands-on day camp for children ages 8 to 14, is now open for registration for the summer 2013 session with a new program offering – Big Ideas: The Creativity, Design and Innovation Camp.
Run out of the Faculty of Science at York University, Science Explorations offers three camp programs to choose from. Each is designed to engage youth and explore a variety of topics in science and engineering.
Camp activities use an exploratory learning approach that is focused on “learning by doing”. Our campers also get a chance to work in small groups on a number of projects that will help foster problem-solving and critical-thinking.
The programs are run in one-week sessions all summer long, from July 2 to August 23. The following three programs are now open for registration:
- Science Exploration – Aristotle Adventurers or Plato Pioneers, for ages 8 to 11;
- Engineering Explorations – DaVinci Discoverers or Einstein Explorers, for ages 11 to 14; and
- Big Ideas, for ages 11 to 14.
