Registration for Winter 2018 is now open! Click the button below to register online.
Winter Club Dates:
February 3rd, 10th, 24th (there is no meeting on February 17th)
March 3rd, 10th, 17th
Everyone gathers at the main entrance (lobby) of the Engineering building for check-in (9am or 1pm depending on whichever timeslot you chose to register in). There will be sign-in tables where the campers will meet. From there the SCI-FI instructors will lead their groups to their classrooms. The instructors will lead everyone back to the main entrance for check-out (12 pm for the end of the morning shift, 4 pm for the end of the afternoon shift).
The Saturday Science Clubs program will include tours on campus, science activities and engineering projects. We try to change the take-home projects year after year in such a way to minimize the chance of a student building the same project two years in a row. Usually each week features a different theme in science and engineering. The curriculum is also completely different in each term. Topics from the last year included biology, logic, space, health science, chemistry, technology, rocks and fossils, physics, computer science, and environmental science.
Grade 1-2: Curiosity
Grade 3-4: Discovery
Grade 5-6: Enterprise
Grade 7+: Codemakers: Game Dev - Free this term thanks to a generous grant from Actua!
Participants in the Codemakers: Students will learn the methods of software development using logic and coding algorithms. Students should know how to use a Personal Computer. Coding experience is not necessary. Please note that returning participants will have the opportunity to take their programming to the next level by delving further into the love2D platform!
To Register for Codemakers Game Dev: Follow the registration links and enter the sponsorship code listed on the details page.
