Summer of Space

Join us this summer for eight weeks of virtual camps around Space Exploration.
We cover popular themes with engaging hands-on activities.
Note: We will cover these themes for two separate age groups – Junior (Gr. 1-5, 2hr) and Senior (Gr. 6-8, 2hr)

Explore the Moon!

2 hours daily

   Gr. 1-5

10 AM – 12 PM

This week-long Moon Camp will have Grade 1 to 5 kids learn all about Earth’s nearest celestial neighbour, including a wide range of science facts and our history of exploring it. Participants will complete a series of daily activities and challenges ranging from hands-on crafts to design to coding, with the ultimate goal of charting a path on the surface for a future team of astronauts to follow!

Lunar Rover Design

2 hours daily

   Gr. 6-8

10 AM – 12 PM

This week-long Moon Camp will explore themes of science, astronomy, engineering and robotics as campers work in teams to design their own Moon rover mission. With Canada planning to send its own rover to the Moon by 2026, this camp will give participants the opportunity to explore various careers in space and complete a series of challenges ultimately designing their very own Moon rovers that can navigate the surface and investigate key research questions about our nearest celestial neighbour!

Explore Mars!

2 hours daily

   Gr. 6-8

2 PM – 4 PM

  •  

What motivates scientists and engineers to send so many missions to Mars? This program offers participants the chance to explore the red planet in much greater detail as they design and test their own Mars missions. Working in teams and exploring themes of Science and Engineering, Campers will complete a series of daily challenges that will progress them through the steps of carrying out a successful Mars mission and learn about the various roles and careers that go into making such missions successful!

Taking Climate Action from Space

2 hours daily

   Gr. 5-8

10 AM – 12 PM

  •  

What can we learn about our own home planet from space? How do we get this information? This introductory camp helps participants understand the important role of Earth-observing satellites. Campers will design their own satellites, determine what science questions they want to investigate, and how they can help reduce the impact of climate change in our urban landscapes.

August 8 – 12
