We're Moving!

This Fall we are prepping for a big move to a newly renovated space on campus!  Our new MakerLab will enable us to host workshops and programs year round!  As a result we will be offering a reduced schedule of programs this fall.  Look for information about Winter Clubs in early December.  

Check out the STEAM Horizon Awards!

Are you often described as a leader, an achiever, or an innovator? Do you have limitless drive, ambition, and determination? If so, there’s an opportunity to receive a $25,000 prize towards your post-secondary education.

The STEAM Horizon Awards, a newly funded prize program, invites Canada’s youth to promote positive changes throughout their community using science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).

Up to seven students will each be awarded a $25,000 prize for their post-secondary education. Two of the seven prizes will go to Indigenous youth. The prizes will be funded by the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation Foundation, alongside eight Founding Partners. We are confident that these recipients will act as role models and ambassadors for future STEAM generations.

Complete a Post-Camp Parent Survey


We hope your child enjoyed their week of camp at Science Venture here at the University of Victoria. We  would love it if you would share a bit about you and your child's experience with us by completing a short (5-15 minute) online survey, hosted by Actua. Your responses will help us capture the success of the week and improve our camps in the future! 

Science Venture is a proud network member of Actua. Actua provides training, resources and support to a national network of member organizations offering science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs. Actua members reach over 250,000 youth per year in 500 communities nationwide.

In order to share your experience, visit (parent.actua.ca) and use the code (4009) to provide feedback for Science Venture. Your responses will be confidential and will be provided to the camp director and Actua for review. Only group results with no identifiable information will be used in camp reports or for promotional purposes unless otherwise agreed to by you.
