About this event

The Exploration Place is excited to announce its first-ever Virtual Science Alliance Workshops! This will be the 24th year that we have run Science Alliance Camps. There will be 8 weeks of themed camps for a range of ages, this week is coding and is aimed at participants grade 4-6.
Cost: $30/participant
Participants must be able to pick up their kit from The Exploration Place.

Each participant will pick up a special kit from The Exploration Place before their week starts. This kit will include daily activities and supplies with some written instructions. Some of these materials are yours to keep and others need a deposit and to be returned to the Exploration Place after the workshops are over (ex. Robots).
Each morning at 9am participants will be asked to join a 1 - 1.5 hour long zoom chat with their facilitator. In this chat, they will receive instructions for their activities for the day and have some face-to-face time with their facilitators. Participants will have access to their facilitators throughout the day (9am-4pm/Mon-Fri) via email, or zoom if there are any questions.

One ticket bought on Eventbrite = one kit.

If you happen to have your own robot for the week you will not be required to give us a deposit. If you would like to purchase one of the robots (ozobot) please contact Jaclyn at jaclyn.baxter@theexplorationplace.com.

If you don't have your own ozobot a deposit is required to borrow one from us. More information will be provided closer to the date. The deposit ticket will be refunded to you once you return the kit back to The Exploration Place.
