The number of communities visited by Science North science camps this summer has been scaled way back from the usual three dozen, but Timmins made the cut.

Staff scientist Josée Bertrand Houle says the camp is here the week of August 9th.  For four- and five-year-olds, it’s called “Curious Kids”, exploring things like colours and addressing a lot of questions “Why?”.

For six-to-eight-year-olds, there’s “Dino Camp”.

“Everything about ancient ecosystems, learning about predators, the biggest land animals,” Bertrand Houle outlines, “so if you have some dino lovers, that’s a good camp for them.”

In addition, there’s one for girls only, between six and eight years old called “Engineer Like a Girl”.

“They’re going to learn about a lot of science heroines and learn how to be creative and use their engineering skills.”

Full details and registration are available on the Science North website.
