Science is the study of absolutely everything around us. We live it, breathe it, and even eat it.
“When I was 10 years old, I attended my first-ever science summer camp and was introduced to the idea that science surrounds and fills us,” says Alec Longiaru assistant director of the EUReKA! Science Program – a non-profit student-run organization based out of Thompson Rivers University. “I was never a child that was immediately drawn towards the sciences, but EUReKA! shed a unique and exciting light towards it in a fun, friendly environment.”
EUReKA! will be coming to Salmon Arm from Aug. 15 to 19, and is welcoming campers from the ages of 7 to14 years old to attend the weeklong program.
Campers will be introduced to all different aspects of science, from chemistry to biology, physics to engineering, and computers.
The instructors are energetic and dedicated to helping kids explore through dissections, experiments, and various fun interactive projects.
“What I remember most of all was building a rocket car, along with a vast array of other projects,” says Longiaru. “I am proud to say that I am now an instructor for EUReKA! and am extremely enthused to help other kids have the same awesome experience I did all those years ago.”
The camp will be taking place at Salmon Arm Secondary, Sullivan campus.
