Adventures in Engineering and Science - Summer Programs

SUMMER CAMPS

Are your children interested in participating in fun, hands-on engineering and science projects in real university labs? Do you want to introduce them to the merits of chemistry experiments, dissections, circuitry, 3D printing and/or programming? Sounds interesting? Then consider one of our summer programs for kids or teens!

Camps are run at the University of Ottawa as well as in satellite locations in Kanata, BarhavenOrleans and Pembroke.
