This camp is for you if you...

 

☑️ Like science          

☑️ Have an interest in research          

☑️ Are interested in the brain

 


 

In order to offer students a safe and stimulating environment our Labs are moving online this summer. With a continued focus on neuroscience and understanding the brain, we will offer students the opportunity to develop their lab skills through the use of a virtual animal model, to learn about lab design and experimentation.

Our Explorers (Grade 7, 8, 9) will develop their lab techniques, to develop an appreciation for the research process and develop critical thinking and design skills for a greater understanding of how science is applied.

Our Explorers will be co-learning neuroscience concepts and conducting experiments in separate breakout rooms to further extend their learning. Everyone will also have the opportunity to "meet" guest speakers who will provide a fascinating glimpse into the real world of neuroscience in Canada and how understanding your brain helps in all aspects of learning.

Financial assistance available for those who qualify.
