DiscoverE

Saturday Camps

Registration for Winter Saturday Camps opens November 13 at 12:00pm

Fun at DiscoverE continues into the school year with our Saturday Camps. We run our Saturday Engineering and Science Camps and Saturday Technology Camps on the University of Alberta's North Campus in the Fall and again in the Winter. All our camps our designed to get all youth excited in STEM, while our all-girls camps are focused specifically on encouraging female mentorship.  Camp registration for Winter 2019 will open on Tuesday, November 13th at noon!

The registration cost is $250 per camp. Bursaries are available.

Camps meet for three hours on ten consecutive Saturdays at the University of Alberta's North Campus. For campers that would like to participate in both morning and afternoon camps, lunch time supervision will be provided.

All of our camps will showcase projects and programs that your children will not have seen in past DiscoverE camps or clubs.

Saturday STEM Camps

These camps are an opportunity for participants to experience the excitement of science, engineering, and math through fun and interactive hands-on activities and challenges. Participants will develop problem-solving and practical skills required to be successful in engineering and science. Saturday STEM Camps will also feature visits from experts in science and engineering fields and tours of laboratories on campus when applicable.

Saturday Tech Camps

Participants will engage in hands-on activities and projects with various software, hardware, technical and computer programming languages. Previous coding or technical experience is not necessary, as participants will build on technology fundamentals throughout the program. University students will provide one-on-one mentorship, and facilitate visits by computing science experts.

Winter 2019

Saturday STEM Camps

Grade 4 - 6, Structural and Civil Engineering

Participants will gain a much better insight into these streams of engineering and complete hands-on projects in each area. Participants will be visited by mentors working in these fields and will have the opportunity to visit facilities and labs on campus that employ these concepts in real life!

Grade 7 - 9, Chemical, Material and Environmental Engineering.

Explore these three exciting engineering disciplines and go more in-depth into each specialization. Participants will be visited by mentors working in these fields and will have the opportunity to visit facilities and labs on campus that employ these concepts in real life!

Saturday Tech Camps

Grade 4 - 6, Stop Motion Magic – Level 1

Participants will gain hands-on experience with stop motion animation by making their own film! This includes video editing, sound editing and much, much more!


Grade 7 - 9, Stop Motion Magic – Level 2

Participants will make their own stop motion film! Level 2 will be a more advanced than Stop Motion Magic Level 1, but Level 1 is not a prerequisite for this camp.

Winter Schedule

Camp runs from January 26th to April 6th. Due to the statutory holiday, there will be no camp on February 16th.
