Each of our camps are high-energy, hands-on learning, and include a broad exposure to a variety of topics in science, engineering, technology and math (STEM).
York University's Spark Lab Programs are week-long sessions designed for students in grades 9 to 12 who want more hands-on science. Using experiment-based learning, students explore physics, biology, chemistry and coding through lab work. Escape the traditional classroom and learn science by doing science. Programs run from 9:30am to 3:30pm daily, for four- or five-days depending on the week. Each session will allow participants to be involved in hands-on experiments, participate in mentor visits, and experience working in a university environment.
From the analysis of urban air samples and quality control for processed foods to roadside breathalyzer tests and evidence used in criminal trials, analytical chemistry is a very important and useful branch of chemistry! Chromatography, gravimetric analysis, mass spectrometry, and titrations are some of the analytical techniques students will be exploring over the course of a week. Students will be challenged to think like an analytical chemist as they learn about and work with each step of the analytical process, starting from developing hypotheses and sampling, and concluding with the analysis and examination of data. This course is recommended for those taking senior science courses and for those who want to improve their scientific writing skills.
Science Engagement Programs offer innovative and engaging programs designed to inspire youth and discover exciting topics in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Our programs use a discovery and inquiry-based learning approach with a focus on ‘learning by doing’. Our outreach model provides students with a chance to work in small groups on a variety of projects. This model helps foster problem solving, critical thinking, and an overall passion for STEM.
