Breaks:

During our camps, there is a snack break in the morning or afternoon session. If you are doing a full day camp then there is an hour lunch break.

Please provide enough food and beverage for the snack breaks and or lunch breaks depending on which sessions your child is enrolled in.

As well, Weather permitting and for the full day camps, we will be going to the park or on a nature walk, so please provide sun protection and appropriate footwear for the walk.

There are two commercial customer parking spots available in our customer parking lot located under the Remix building entrance off 14th st.

Also there are two commercial loading zone 15 min. parking spaces on the lane way in front of our location at 730 Marine dr. the entrance is off Bewicke. As you may not turn left off off Marine Dr. on to Bewicke, we suggest turning up Fell Ave, turning right Larson, and then turning right again onto Bewicke Ave., then right again onto the lane way.

Then there is public parking available on 14th ST.

Drop off time:

Within 15 Minutes before the scheduled class start time. If you have an older child and a younger child to register, you may drop both children off for a 9am Specialists start and the younger student may do some open play with STEM toys from 9-9:30am when their class begins. Similarly, with pick up time from 3:30-4pm. Call for any before or after care 604-379-2767.

March 16-20 – 9AM-12PM: KEEP IT GREEN, WORKING TOGETHER

In this week of spring camp students will:

• Day 1:Recycle Race. They will learn how we can find a simple machine in recycle materials and how we can use this concepts and their creativity to create something fun like a car made of recycle materials, they will learn the basic to build it and test it, then they will improve their designs to use Eolic energy in a final Recycle Car Race.

• Day 2:Clean Energy’s: We are continuously using more than one source of energy in our lives, some of them are non-renewable energy and they create damage to our planet. Students will discover basic concepts about clean energy and will work on more than one project to build and test their own clean energy devices.

• Day 3:The oil spill challenge. Oil spills happen far too often harming living things because the chemicals in oil are poisonous. It may take decades before the ecosystem around the oil spill recovers from the impact of the environmental disaster. Students will design, build and test their own tools to contain an oil spill; learning about ecosystem impact from this disaster.

• Day 4: Water Purification. Water makes up about 71% of the Earth’s surface. A small percentage is fresh water available for human consumption, using STEM students will design, build and test their own water filter to get clearer water and rise awareness about the importance of water for living beings.

Day 5: Robo-Cleaner. Technology is always there available to make our life easier. This day students will design, build and program a Robot that to face a cleaning challenge to help keep our planet trash free. They will learn basic concepts about Robotics and environmental engineering.

March 16-20 – 1-4PM: Mindstorm EV3 Robots

This exciting week of Robotics, the students will build their own EV3 Robot, play Gotcha with the EV3, their EV3s will have an In-line skating race, Robot-communications, and their EV3 will make its way through an obstacle course.

Specialist /Managers (7-14 years)

March 23-27 – 9AM-12PM: PLAYING WITH STEM

In this week of spring camp students will:

• Day 1: Aiming Contest. Students will learn physics basic concepts like elasticity, tension, velocity, thrust and more, to design, build and test their own launchers to face different challenges. Students will use mathematics, physic concepts, engineering design process as well their creativity to find the best materials and best design to face each challenge.

• Day 2: All Terrain Robot Race Challenge: They need to build their Robot, learn about programming and IR sensors to make their remote control and use their creativity and Engineering Design Process to design the tools to complete and all terrain race, and other challenges.

• Day 3:Electro-Fun!. Students will learn the basic concepts about electricity building their own electromagnets facing a challenge that will required all their creativity and focus; Then learn and work with electronic circuits to design and build fun electronic projects using STEM to complete their tasks.

• Day 4:STEM Toy Maker. The students will learn how we can use the physic concepts and Engineering Design Process to design and build toys that will help them to face different challenges making individual effort to build teamwork.

•Day 5:Sailing with wings. In the last day students will learn about Aerospace Engineering concepts, like Bernoulli principle first understanding how the wind give thrust and flows through objects and then designing and building their own paper airplanes to complete more challenges individually and in teams like a boomerang airplane.

March 23-27 – 1-4PM:   Crazy Science Challenge

Launch water rockets, discover pneumatic principles, build a truck with a mechanical hook, create their fuel cell that generates hydrogen using solar energy, turn on a LED light spinning magnets, they will learn about production line manufacturing, making their own ice cream.
