Conference: Emerging Aboriginal Scholars Summer Camp

Subject: Mathematics

Class: Educational


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.
