Summer Camp Opportunities for Aboriginal Students
The Mathematics Department at UBC and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) are offering two summer camp opportunities for aboriginal students.
Both camps are free.
Transitional Summer camp
This is for students transitioning from grade 7 to grade 8, the transition from elementary to high school. This five week summer camp will take place at Britannia Secondary. The main purpose of this camp is to help students to get ready for high school. Students will take 75 minutes instruction in math and English everyday in the morning and sport activities in the afternoon. The camp is free and the students will get $25 scholarship for good attendance and work ethics every week. There is more information in the attached registration form.
Emerging Aboriginal Scholars UBC High school Summer camp
This five week summer camp is for students currently attending grades 9 to 12. The main purpose of this camp is to help students with their academics and for them to get work experience at the university. Students take 90 minutes of math and English every day and three days a week they will be working with a faculty member in the area of their choice. Students will get $100 a week for 7.5 hours of work experience. The summer camp takes place at UBC, and students will take classes at PIMS and the Long House. Last year we had students working with the nuclear accelerator, and working at labs in the physics and chemistry departments, among other opportunities.
