NWCC, UVic partner for free youth camp

Northwest Community College and University of Victoria's (UVic) Science Ventures partner to present a Science Camp open to youth in grades 2 to 6.

The camp takes place at the Prince Rupert NWCC Campus, from July 7 to July 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free to students.

Participants join Science Venture's team of passionate and engaging students from UVic for experiments, building projects and outdoor fun. Youth explore topics such as the creative field of engineering, the living world of biology, the moving universe of physics and why chemistry matters.

Established in 1991, the University of Victoria's Science Venture program is operated in partnership with the UVic Faculties of Science, Engineering, and Education. They work to inspire youth to explore their potential and discover their vital role in the world through life changing science, engineering, and technology experiences.
