november programs

We are hosting two programs in November 2020: Introduction to Coding (Grades 3-4) and Introduction to Biology (Grades 5-6).

 

Each workshop consists of lessons and hands-on activities (i.e. science experiments) for students to participate in. As a result, students are required to provide their own materials that will be used during the workshops.

 

Below is more information about each program. You may find the required materials for each workshop below as well.
