After School Club Descriptions

DSCN0249The activities done at clubs are different each year. Our team of Instructors plan the curriculum on a week-by-week basis so they can tailor each week to fit the clubs participants, so we cannot provide exact schedules. The table below should give you a general idea of the activities we have done in the past.

We bring in mentors or go on a field trip at least once per term, and our camps include a wide range of science and engineering topics. We avoid repeat activities that have occurred in the last three years to avoid kids experiencing the same club – so every week, get ready for a brand new week of science and engineering!
