March Break Science Camp
Science Leaders Camp
Pueblo Science’s Science Leaders Camp will give your child a unique science exploration experience. Intended for children finishing grades 7 and 8, the camp provides an opportunity to engage in a deeper understanding of topics which will include chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and electronics, presented through interdisciplinary activities. Children will learn how to use the scientific method to test hypotheses and reach conclusions leading to an improved theoretical framework of concepts. We will visit research facilities around the University of Toronto, exposing the children to cutting edge research methods used by today’s leading scientists.
Our science leader campers will also work throughout the week to plan a science activity for younger children, which will then be put to the test with our elementary school aged campers at our Summer Science Camp. The Science Leaders will learn how to consider the scope of the topic, age-appropriateness, and time restrictions as well as material sourcing constraints.
Science Summer Camp
Pueblo Science’s summer camp offers one or two weeks of fun-filled educational activities guaranteed to lift a child’s enthusiasm for science. Intended for children finishing grades 1 to 6, the camp provides an opportunity to explore a variety of topics including chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and electronics, all in an active, exciting environment! Each day consists of a morning and afternoon session dedicated to a different topic, with breaks and outdoors activities to make the most of summer days. The children will get a chance to spend some supervised time outside, have excursions to local places of interest around the university and visit labs to interact with scientist doing cutting-edge research. Our goal is to encourage a lifelong love of learning and inquisitiveness through hands-on activities.
Camp Location: On University of Toronto’s St. George campus or in its vicinity. Specific locations will be announced on a later date.
