Reaching 214,684 youth and beyond!
EYES has been in operation since 1995. Today, EYES offers a variety of programs including: in-school workshops, day camps, all-girls day camps, satellite camps in Assiniboia, Balcarres, Weyburn, Moose Jaw, Foam Lake, Esterhazy, Estevan, Swift Current, and Shaunavon, and a winter club program. We reach under-served populations in Regina and in 2016, we ran thirteen weeks of free programming in disadvantaged communities. We are partnered with the Open Door society to offer camp programming for newcomers to Canada. EYES engaged over 15,000 southern Saskatchewan youth in 2016, and we are hoping to continue this trend in 2017. The success the program has enjoyed would not be possible without the tremendous support it receives from the University of Regina, Actua, local and national funders, as well as numerous individual supporters.
Actua provides training, resources and support to its national network of members located at universities and colleges across Canada in the delivery of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education outreach programming. Each year, these members engage over 225,000 youth in 500 communities nationwide. Please visit Actua at www.actua.ca.
