What is the Summer Science Program?

A one-week cultural, health and science program for Indigenous students in grades 8-11. The program promotes interest in health and science programs through firsthand experience at the University of British Columbia. The Summer Science Program is a great opportunity to meet new friends, eat great food, connect with Elders/role models while enjoying fun, laughter and learning.
