Kelowna Saturday Clubs


Saturday Clubs are weekly sessions all about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). In our 2022/23 Kelowna Saturday Clubs, we invite students in Grades 1-7 in the 2022-2023 school year to join us in exciting themes including Maker and STEAM! These weekly ten-session programs are led by two passionate undergraduate staff and are sure to excite almost anyone with a passion for STEM.
