What's Included

In this course, students will learn about the fundamental particles that make up our universe and the forces that exist between them. It will teach students how to think outside the box and be able to show the processes that cause interactions that occur in our everyday lives. We will discuss quantum mechanics, as well as touch on quantum field theory in order to understand how particles act and react with each other. In this course, we will start with simple, well known and understood particles, such as the electron, and build up to new frontiers in science such as the Higgs boson. In this course we will be exploring the worlds of force carriers through methods used daily by experimental and theoretical physicists to do their research.

About This Organizer

Science Explorations offers fun, innovative and engaging camp programs designed to inspire youth and discover science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  Based out of the Faculty of Science at York University, our camp programs use an discovery and inquiry-based learning approach that is focused on ‘learning by doing’. Our outreach model provides campers also get a chance to work in small groups on a variety of projects that will help foster problem solving, critical thinking, and an overall passion for STEM.

        Our camp takes place within the Faculty of Science at the Keele Campus of York University. Within the university environment, this gives campers the unique opportunity to learn and discover the amazing world of science and engineering . In each of our programs, whether in day-long workshops or  week-long camps, we enrich the learning experience with laboratory visits, faculty presentations, workshops and demonstrations from student groups, and much, much more!
