Fall 2021 Programs
Do you Homeschool or have a student registered in a Distributed Learning school?  Our science programs help provide hands-on learning that address science curriculum points!
Wandering School is our outdoor education series, aimed at teaching biology themes in unique locations across the Nanaimo region with curated science activities selected for each site.  Grade groups include Kindergarten to Grade 2, Grades 3 & 4, and Grades 5 to 7.  Allotment funds may be used to pay for these programs.
We also offer amazing workshops for all grades – check out our Paleontology 101 & Fossil Dig 2-part workshop happening in September!
Pro-D Camps!

Nanaimo Science is a great place to spend your summer!  Learn, have fun, explore outdoors and make friends!

We offer two styles of camps: full-week registrations and individual day camps.  All camps are lead by our trained Outreach Educators, who are university students/graduates in science or education; they are also very experienced with children, and we ensure that there is a certified first aid leader at each camp.

Ongoing Programs
Science on the move

Hey Teachers, bring Nanaimo Science to your school with our School-yard Programs and outdoor-focused field trips! Nanaimo Science’s mobile science van can bring hands-on programs with specific curriculum links.  We also offer GO Grant eligible field trips that are focused on outdoor science and sustainability activities.  Programs can be adapted to work with PLO’s across different grade levels.

Preschool Programs

We are excited to be bringing back our programs for children ages 3-5 with our Preschool Physics series!

Explore basic physics principles!  Preschoolers will investigate the properties of air, light, magnets and gravity!  This fun 4-class series will be held in our Country Club Centre location.  Activities will include science demonstrations, free exploration and experimentation with child-friendly equipment, songs and stories.
