After School Science Club!
Super Science Club is a partnership between the UFV Faculty of Science and Telus World of Science which provides students the opportunity to participate in a hands-on science club at their location! Our goal is to provide students in grades 1-7 with engaging after school STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) experiences through exciting demonstrations, hands-on investigations, active games, and more.
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.
Since 2010 UFV students have been delivering the Super Science Club program to schools including, Eugene Reimer Middle School, Bernard Elementary, Central Elementary, Rosedale Elementary, and Deroche Elementary. Each year, Super Science Club reaches over 100 elementary students (and future scientists?!!).
The Super Science Club runs from 3:15-4:30 pm once a week and there can be a primary session for 18 students in grades 1-3 and/or an intermediate session for 20 students in grades 4-6. The program covers 4-6 weeks of activities!
2019-2020 Topics include:
- Light Bulbs – Physics
- Bacteria – Biology
- DNA – Chemistry
- Plastics – Engineering
- Bridges – Engineering
- Plate Tectonics – Earth Sciences
Science World Family Membership
If students have good attendance and uphold the SSC Code of Conduct, they receive a one-year family membership to Science World at the end of the program! These memberships are for immediate family only, up to 2 adults and 4 children per membership. If two children in SSC are siblings, they will receive only one membership for their family.
Family Science Night
Science World opens its doors to families of current Super Science Club participants, their teachers and site liaisons for one evening at the end of each term (December and May). There is free pizza, a stage show, science activities and an OMNImax movie showing.

If you are a UFV student with a passion for science and love working with kids, keep your eyes open for job postings at the beginning of the Fall and Winter semesters. The job includes doing cool science activities with groups of elementary kids as part of after-school programs. Science World provides all the training and you will be using their curriculum.
