Kelowna Saturday Clubs

KELOWNA SATURDAY CLUBS

 

Our year-round Saturday clubs are an exciting mix of science and engineering activities. Clubs include hands-on projects, demos, design challenges, lab tours, and guest mentors! All clubs are taught by experienced university students with a passion for their field of study.

 

The activities done at clubs are different each year. Our team of Instructors plan the curriculum on a week-by-week basis so they can tailor each week to fit the clubs participants, so we cannot provide exact schedules. The table below should give you a general idea of the activities we have done in the past.

 

We bring in mentors or go on a field trip at least once per term, and our camps include a wide range of science and engineering topics. We avoid repeated activities that have occurred in the last three years to avoid kids experiencing the same club – so every week, get ready for a brand new week of science and engineering!

When and where do the clubs run?

 

2019/2020 clubs will run every Saturday morning from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the UBC EME Building. Information on the specific location for each club will be emailed out the week before clubs begin.
