Program Descriptions

Unfortunately this year as Science Quest is being run completely ONLINE, there will be no outreach camps for the 2021 summer. We hope to return to communities surrounding Kingston next summer.

Please see descriptions for our outreach camps from the 2019 summer below:

Science & Engineering Camp
(Grades 4-9)

In Science & Engineering Camp, we use the engineering design cycle and hypothesis testing to deeply understand scientific topics. Topics are age-appropriate and based off of the Grades 4 – 8 Ontario Science Curriculum so campers can learn while having fun! We cover the main branches of science: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering. Your camper could learn about anything from habitats, biodiversity, human organ systems, and cells — to — light and sound, atoms, changes in matter, flight, and electricity. Our instructors develop an A and B week of Science & Engineering Camp so your camper can enjoy two weeks of camp without repeating any activities!

Robotics Camp
(Grades 4-9)

 Novice: Grades 4-5
Senior: Grades 6-9

Robotics Camp allows kids to learn everything they would ever want to know about the world of robots! Campers will learn all about the coding, building, and energy required for a robot to work. Working with a Science Quest’s variety of robots such as Jade robots, Lego Mindstorms, Spheros, Ozobots, MicroBits and our brand new EV3s campers have the chance to explore how robots work. Our instructors develop an A and B week of Robotics Camp so your camper can enjoy more than one week without repeating any activities!
