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.
