District-Wide Programs

We are very excited to be resuming our service to Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools with new, outdoor programs!

Grade 2, 5, and 6 students, through arrangements made by their teachers, will have the opportunity to take part in tailored science programs delivered by Nanaimo Science.  Additionally, a limited number of Grade 7 programs will be offered as well.  All activities will be done outdoors with strict COVID safety practices in place.

Brand new programs for Grade 2 (Our Microscopic World) and Grade 6 (Environmental Protection) will be delivered between January to March 2021.

Programs for Grade 5 (Citizen Science) and Grade 7 (Healthy Streams) will run starting in April 2021.

Teachers should consult with their Principals for more information about these opportunities.

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.

Online Chemistry & Physics Program

This is a 5-week online program that targets specific learning outcomes for students in grades 3,4, and 5. This series will cover Chemistry and Physics topics and PLOs.

Come get energized with our chemistry and physics focused term. We will be exploring what makes up matter by crafting 3D molecules, and mixing and separating solutions while observing the chemical changes in them. Experiment with thermal energy and the different ways it is transferred between matter.

Students will take part in weekly online (Zoom) sessions with our Outreach Coordinator.  Sessions will run between 45 minutes to 1 hour, and it is strongly recommended that a parent/guardian stay in the room to support the student with the activities and/or technical issues.

Hey Parents!

Nanaimo Science offers a wide range of activities aimed at children from infancy to Grade 7.  Check out our school break camps, Pro-D day camps and workshops, and Homeschool supports!
