WHIMS DayThe Power of NatureSaskatchewan Science
Tinker Day
What is the one thing that connects all branches of science – WHIMIS! In this camp campers will use WHIMIS and safely explore the laboratory! With great nature, comes even great power! Natural disasters to the sun, it is incredible what the world can do! In this camp, we will look at the wonders of nature both BIG and small! Saskatchewan is full of scientific wonders, from mining to the great plains. In this camp, we will learn about all things Saskatchewan! Engineering, coding, and technology are so great, they deserve their own day! Here campers will dip their toes into code, operate great robots, and discover the engineering and design process!

Why are there only four theme days?

Fridays are saved for our week-long competition, pizza party, water fight (weather dependent) & science show.

Drop off and Pick up

Drop off and pick up will be in the Education Building at the University of Regina, just beside the ED Auditorium. A map will be posted to show you exactly where to go.

Parking

This map will direct you to locations which are reserved for you to park in during the drop off and pick up times, as well as the parent show on Friday for all of the summer camps.

Enrollment Confirmation

Children who are enrolled in their week of choice will receive a confirmation of enrollment by email. Applications for children who are requesting financial assistance will require a longer processing period. If the week you request is full, we will contact you regarding alternate dates. A waiting list will also be prepared and administered on a first come first, serve basis.

All Girls

The EYES All Girls Program is a day camp at the University of Regina for girls who will be entering grades 4 to 9 this fall. It mirrors our EYES camp program except your group is made up of all female staff and campers. We also try to bring in a female mentor who works within science or engineering.

EYES Camp provides hands-on activities within science, engineering and technology. The activities are based on different theme days shown below. For instance, we would have a day dedicated to learning about Canadian science for our Canada theme day.

Codemakers (Grades 4 – 9)

In this program you will have mapped out lessons to help introduce to the software and hardware we will be working with. You will get a taste of everything! From 3D Printing and designs, to Robots and coding. You will get to dip your toes in a multitude of tech related topics. It will be a balance between instruction, self development and challenges.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop your photo editing skills
  • Design video games
  • Create your own web pages
  • Program your own apps
  • Build Arduinos
  • Use a Raspberry Pi
  • And much much more!

This year the 7 – 9 program has EXPANDED. Campers will have access to tutorials but the program is self-directed with fewer instructor lead activities. With a project based approach, you choose what you want to work on for the week!

1. Codemakers (Grade 7 – 9): Hardware

This week of camp will focus primarily on hardware, and will be very hands-on. Campers will have the opportunity to build and program robots, make their own electronic devices, and write computer programs to connect to their creations. This week of camp is perfect for any makers and builders that want to learn how to bring their ideals to life!

The basics of electronics and programming will be examined through the use of Arduino, Processing, and Vex Robotics. Campers will also have to opportunity to use 3D printers to bring their creations into the real world.

2. Codemakers (Grade 7 – 9): Software

This week of camp will focus primarily on software. Campers will be coding their own video games, computer programs, computer animations, and beyond! We want to help campers find the intersection between their passion and programming. If you like music, you can use code to write your own songs. If you like art, you can generate your own artwork using code. Campers will learn to code in Game Maker, Processing, and other programs and will have the chance to connect their programs to the real world by using a Raspberry Pi.

EYES (4-9)

EYES Camp is a day camp at the University of Regina for youth who will be entering grades 4 to 9 this fall.

EYES Camp provides hands on activities within science, engineering and technology. Groups are separated by age and explore a theme day’s subject through a variety of fun filled experiences. For instance, we would have a day dedicated to learning about density for the Density theme day. I can tell you now that we are going to have both a dissection and will build Lego robots. Otherwise the staff will develop the curriculum.

Important Information for previous campers:

In the past, we had two theme weeks of camp for Grades 4 – 9.  We have expanded our E-Design Codemakers program to encompass the same age range and thus have reduced EYES Camp to have only one theme week.  If you register for 2 weeks of EYES, you will participate in the same activities twice!  If you are interested in registering for two weeks of camp this summer, we recommend choosing one week of the EYES Camp program and one week of the E-Design Codemakers program.
