Nanaimo Science receives generous Mid Island Co-op Community Sponsorship & Funding Program

We were extremely excited to be selected by Mid Island Co-op for their Community Sponsorship & Funding Program.

With these funds, we will be able to provide our students with digital microscopes and add to our classroom set of tablets.
The digital microscopes will let children get an extremely close look at specimens out in the field (they’re battery powered!), and because they use screens instead of eye pieces, they will also help us preserve physical distancing while teaching.  Furthermore, all surfaces can be sanitized.
The tablets will also help support our activities in a variety of ways: for coding and LEGO activities, to stop-motion movie making, and for plant identification outdoors.
We are so grateful to Mid Island Co-op for this support, particularly during these challenging COVID times!
Mid Island Co-op has been a longtime supporter of Nanaimo Science. Thank you again for helping us inspire curious minds!
