“Summer holiday”, the word that sparks joy in us whenever we hear it, is the free period between school years. We fill this time with various experiences, such as going to a summer school, getting a summer job, travelling around the country/world, or, fulfilling everyone’s favourite, sleeping in and just chilling at home. Lots of students also decide to get involved in volunteer activities. Here, I would like to introduce one of the volunteering activities I participated in during the break.
“Geering Up” UBC Engineering and Science camps are for all K-12 students, promoting science, engineering and technology through fun, innovative and hands-on projects. They not only hold camps at the UBC campus but also hold some at VSB elementary schools. The diversity of the camps varies depending on the age groups and locations.
