What is a Science Venture workshop?
Two university students from the Science Venture team enter your classroom equipped with supplies, enthusiasm, and excitement for a jam-packed two-hour science, engineering, and technology workshop. These dynamic sessions consist of exciting demonstrations, interactive experiments, and hands-on activities. Upon completion of the workshop, the class will have developed an excitement for science, engineering, and technology while interacting with positive university role models.
Our workshops are designed to meet BC Science Prescribed Learning Outcomes.
