North Island College camps combine fun and hands-on learning

Registration has opened for Youth Academy summer camps at North Island College.

Hands-on, educational camps — geared for ages 9-16 — will be offered in July and August at the Comox Valley campus. Camps will run in a small group format with COVID-19 protocols in place to ensure health and safety of participants and staff.

Ali Sandholm, NIC youth and community outreach liaison, said the camps provide an opportunity for youth to access education and to explore their passions in the summer, while connecting with other youth who share their interests.

“The participants will get a rare taste of the post-secondary experience in NIC’s science labs, computer labs, classrooms and other campus spaces,” Sandholm said.

Camp offerings include Girls Only Lego Robotics and Mad Scientist. In the latter, participants will explore optics in physics, create reactions in chemistry, and navigate the wonders of life in biology.

At CODE-Con, campers will learn popular coding languages and how to program creative digital projects.

Another offering is STEAM Teens, which combines art with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to ignite students’ inner creativity.
