This is a two-week program focusing on teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to young learners in a fun and engaging way. The program combines English language instruction and hands-on activities and experiments. We aim to inspire students and get them interested and engaged in the world of STEM.
Students will have the option to explore where their interests lie, through themes like robotics, construction and engineering design, chemistry experiments, electricity and circuits, programming and data management.
A key element of the program is immersion in an English-speaking environment. 90 minutes daily of in-class instruction will be offered in English, giving students the opportunity to improve their vocabulary and overall language skills.
Additionally, the program is offered to local Canadian students. Following the language instruction, classes will be combined so that students have the opportunity to learn alongside Canadian classmates.
