Week 1 – Mad Scientist in Training July 8 to July 12 (5 days)
Discover science and technology through a full week of experiential learning. Create amazing structures, try wacky experiments, make art using a robot…all while meeting new friends! You won’t believe your eyes when you see some of the amazing experiments! Let’s make ice cream, colourful crystals and learn about the science of slime!
Week 2 – Curious Critters July 15 – July 19 (5 days)
How big does a Musk turtle get? Why do Otters make so many bubbles when they swim? How is it that fish are able to rest and not swim? Animals use specific behaviours and adaptations to survive in their habitats. Throughout the week, we will explore animals as we learn about how they tell us the health of the environment. We will even take a walk with a real Aquarist!
Week 3 – Soaring into Space July 22 to July 26 (5 days)
Come explore the cosmos through our own Planetarium. Build rockets and other space technology to take you on a journey through the stars. Walk on the moon and investigate like a real astronaut. The learning possibilities are infinite (like space itself)!!

Week 7 – Wildlife in our Backyard August 19 to August 23 (5 days)
The world outside your door is filled with things that buzz, tweet, squawk, flutter, scurry, build, burrow, hoot, chase, pounce, and soar in your own backyard. Join us on an exploration of what makes backyards very magical places. We will take a closer look at at the wildlife living all around us. Whether downtown, out in the woods, or somewhere in between, you will learn about some of the remarkable plants, birds and animals that live in our own backyards.
