Virtual Summer Camps with Pinnguaq!



About the author

Pinnguaq Association, a not-for-profit organization, incorporates STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) into unique learning applications that promote storytelling, health, wellness and growth with rural and remote communities. At its core, Pinnguaq embraces diversity and creates opportunities in order to empower all people.

This season, Pinnguaq’s Lindsay Makerspace is pleased to offer a series of FREE themed and interactive online camps throughout July and August. Weekly camps will consist of daily sessions that are 90 minutes long. Each day, participants will work on a different hands-on activity relating to the camp topic. Camps will be delivered through the Zoom platform and will be facilitated by 2 of our knowledgeable staff.

Some camps will require a custom-made Maker Kit, which will be made available to borrow or purchase from the Lindsay Makerspace. Camps will be limited to 15 participants, and include a range of exciting topics, including DIY circuits, coding with the BBC Micro:bit, and designing your own AR Filter!  Registration is open for the following July camps! August Camps will be open for registration the first week of July.
