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.
Science Literacy Week is a week-long blitz of science-based activities from coast-to-coast. Science Venture will be at Hillside Mall on Saturday Sep 23 from 11-3 pm sharing our love for ocean science with the public!
Friday SPARCS and Saturday Venture Club Programs begin this Weekend at the University of Victoria.
For more information on Clubs including parking passes and more please download our Clubs Information Package at http://www.scienceventure.ca/s/ClubsInfoPackage2017.pdf
From all of us here at Science Venture: Happy Holidays to everyone and thank you for helping to make 2016 a record year. See you in 2017!

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.
