Children of today are the scientists of tomorrow. To foster a love of learning and science in the next generation, the UFV Faculty of Science supports fun and engaging science programming, targeted at elementary, middle school and high school students.
The BC Secondary schools math contest provides interested students (and their teachers) with a chance to have fun and stretch themselves mathematically. The contest is designed to get as many students as possible involved in doing and enjoying mathematics.
Students in the Fraser Valley are given the opportunity to display their outstanding projects to the public through the Regional Science Fair held each year in April or May at UFV.
We connect educators and youth with outstanding volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning experiences in both school and community settings. The national Let’s Talk Science Outreach program is offered free of charge thanks to our more than 3,500 post-secondary student volunteers at over 45 post-secondary Outreach sites, including ours.
An inter-school math competition in which students in grades 8 and 9 compete in teams of four or five. Regional competitions are held across BC each year in February, with the top teams from each regional tournament moving on to compete at the annual Provincial competition in March or April.
Math Mania is an evening of mathematical demonstrations, puzzles, and hands-on activities for elementary or middle school children. It’s been designed by members of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Department of Mathematics & Statistics to show children – and their parents – how much fun you can have playing with mathematical concepts.
The Faculty of Science offers Science Rocks! Summer camps every year in July and August. Designed especially for young people going into Grades 4, 5, 6, and 7. These camps are great fun and an awesome learning opportunity for campers.
Super Science Club is a partnership between the UFV Faculty of Science and Telus World of Science. Every fall and winter semester UFV science students are trained by Science World to deliver fun and informative after-school science activities to children in the Fraser Valley.
