Events Description

 

Spend your spring break safely exploring chemistry, physics, biology, anatomy, environmental conservation, and weather with our team of experienced Science Educators during our virtual spring break day camps.

Each camp is 4 days with an overarching theme. Each day Science Educators will lead kids through 4-6 interactive and fun science activities.

A supply kit (one per camper) will be delivered to your door containing the materials for up to 24 experiments and activities, as well as a pass to experience the Saskatchewan Science Centre at a later date. Some common household items such as scissors will need to be provided by the parents.

There are two themes that you can pick from:

    • Grossology for ages 6-8

    • Eco Adventure for ages 9-11

THEME #1: GROSSOLOGY (SUITABLE FOR AGES 6-8 YEARS OLD)

THEME #2: Eco Adventure (Suitable for ages 9-11)
