UBC Let's Talk Science strives to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics literacy through the outreach efforts of members of the research community at the University of British Columbia. Our volunteers work with youth from elementary and secondary schools to ignite science excitement and share their knowledge with eager young minds.
Summer Camp 2016: Quest to Middle Earth:A Scientific Odyssey
Quest to Middle Earth:A Scientific Odyssey Summer Camp
UBC LTS hosted for the first time ever in 2016, a summer camp where science and high-fantasy combined in Quest to Middle Earth-A Scientific Odyssey! Grade 7 students had the opportunity to immerse themselves in Tolkien’s fantasy world of Middle Earth through fun science outreach activities linking phenomena in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit with real-world science from the physics of archery to the engineering of a hobbit hole. Thanks to the volunteers and community partners who helped to make this happen, and thanks to the grade 7 students for being a part of it!
