Science Outreach – Winter 2014
For science students and students interested in teaching.
The Faculty of Science is running science outreach programs in two locations this winter semester.
Super Science Club is an after-school program for elementary students that UFV offers in collaboration with Science World. The goal of this program is to inspire at-risk children to be inquisitive about the world around them, and to develop a long-term interest in science and technology. Science World provides paid training and you will be using their curriculum.
See http://www.scienceworld.ca/ssc for more information.
Super Science Club will be running at Bernard Elementary School in Chilliwack on Friday afternoons and at Deroche Elementary School in Mission (Deroche) on Wednesday afternoons. See the schedule below.
We are looking for students with a passion for science and who love working with kids.
