Explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math at the NS3’s Winter Break Camp! Discover the code for living things as we extract DNA from bananas and learn its components while building a double helix with candies. Students will test their brains with optical illusions as well as explore the properties of light with prisms. Time will be spent outdoors during a Divers Lake field trip investigating insects. Each day will include hands-on science activities, unstructured play and recess outside.
