Summer Camp 2016: 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!
