Day 3

What an awesome day we had learning about electronic circuitry, building robots & engaging in some friendly competition :-)

Mr. Yakimoski and his students at École Sturgeon Heights provided us with many rich learning opportunities and deserve a huge thank-you for their role in engaging us in all of the collaborative activities that took place throughout the day! Thank you, Mr. Yakimoski, for providing such wonderful hospitality...

Here are a few pictures that capture some of the highlights of the day:

What were your highlights from the third Science Camp session?
What advice would you give to students who participate in these activities next year?

Don't forget to brush up on your biology for our last Science Camp session next week ;-) Spend a few minutes thinking about the following questions prior to next week's activities...
1) The parts of a cell (i.e. nucleus, cytoplasm, etc...) and the role of each part
2) The parts of a microscope and how a microscope works
3)Why do we prepare cells/specimens before we look at them under a microscope?
4) What are the uses of cells in cancer research?

What resources will you use to help you find your answers?
You may want to use this website as a starting point for reviewing this information...

Don't forget to bring a bagged lunch for the last Science Camp session next week. We look forward to seeing you there :-)

  1. Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the teachers and administrators who put together the four science camp sessions. They were unique experiences for me. My favourite memories are the DNA lab in session two, and the caribou presentation in session one. The robot making was also neat- except the fact that my robot broke soon after I took it home. But I will use the skills I learned in the robotics session to see if I can put it back together. After all, I'll have the opportunity to put what I learned to good use.
