Saturday Science Academy
Since January, École LaVérendrye had the opportunity to send a
couple of our students participate in the "Biomedical Youth Program
Saturday Science Academy". Director, Dr. James Gilchrist from the
University of Manitoba in partnership with the Winnipeg School Division and in
the Inner City Science Center at Niji Mahkwa school, has been piloting a
weekend science club that creates authentic experiences for students to not
only use real instruments but work in the HSC and UofM science labs. Students
participated in experiments ranging from extracting DNA to creating
Solar energy Cells from Fruit. We are thankful to Dr. Gilchrist and his
student volunteers for creating a rich, nurturing and engaging environment
where wonder and curiosity reigned.
