Big Ideas: Creativity, Design and Innovation camp registration now open

Venture Engineering and Science at McMaster University is offering a unique new summer camp opportunity for Hamilton youth ages 10-13.

The Big Ideas: Creativity, Design and Innovation Camp provides youth with a fun and interactive experience where they will be given the opportunity to integrate proven approaches to innovation and business strategy with their existing foundations in science and engineering. Campers will be challenged to think creatively in developing powerful solutions to a real world innovation challenge and given the opportunity to discover their potential as entrepreneurs.

Throughout the week-long experience, campers will meet real entrepreneurs who have successfully applied the same principles taught at the camp in the building of their own business.

This is a new stand-alone initiative that Venture Engineering and Science is offering along side its regular science and engineering camps.

Venture Engineering and Science at McMaster is one of Actua’s 33 member organizations located at universities and colleges across Canada and one of four member organizations that will be delivering the Big Ideas camp program in southern Ontario this summer. Actua is a national charity that inspires 225,000 youth annually to achieve their potential through hands-on science, engineering and technology programming.

The Big Ideas Creativity, Design, and Innovation camp has been developed by the Institute for Competitiveness and Prosperity (ICP) with the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, and Actua, a national charity for science and engineering education for youth.
