How it works!

1. Pick a series of dates (e.g. April 4, 11, 18 & 25)
2. Pick a theme from our list of suggestions, or work with us on custom themes!
3. Advertise to families (minimum 12 kids needed)
4. Register more kids and get free spots! (15th and 30th kid free)
5. Collect family fee and contact information
6. Share details with Nanaimo Science
7. Programs start right after the end-of-day bell (e.g. 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM), if hosting two back-to-back clubs, second starts at 3:35 – 4:35 PM)

You provide:

  • Space in your school (multipurpose room, library or gym)
  • One school staff member/PAC volunteer responsible for child hand-off to parents
  • Student sign-ups (list of names/ages of children)

We provide

  • 2 trained Outreach Educators (with criminal record checks & active first aid training)
  • All supplies and materials for programs


  • Add on PAC bonus which you retain e.g. Each student = $20 per hour
  • Earn $8 per student, 12 minimum students x 4 visits = $386
  • Apply free spots to families in need, or add 100% of the registration fees to your earnings!

Suggested Themes for 4-week Series:

  • KEVA Building & Ozobot Coding (a great starter program that combines building and bots!)
  • Natural History (Animal exploration, crafts & check out specimens)
  • Movie Makers (learn stop-motion, special effects, work with a green screen)
  • Anatomy (skeletal system, senses, circulatory system & DNA)
  • Up, Up & Away (kites, wind tunnels, rockets & space science)
