FREE TRAVELLING WORKSHOPS 2017

In May and June starting on Wednesday, May 10th to Friday, June 2, 2017, Venture will lead interactive workshops at schools in Hamilton and surrounding areas. These workshops are free and available for students In Kindergarten to grade 8.

Our hands-on projects are designed  to get students excited about engineering and science. Our goal is to open their minds to the idea of applied science before they start to make choices about high school and post secondary education.

Each workshop  is developed using the Ministry of Education’s guidelines to ensure that it’s geared to what students are learning in school.
