PotashCorp Kamskénow Application

PotashCorp Kamskénow Science and Math Program - Application 2017-18

Kamskénow (from a Cree word meaning 'to find- to learn') provides fun, hands-on science and mathematics activities to grades 4-11 students in Community Schools in Saskatoon. These activities are led by a pair of knowledgeable graduate or senior undergraduate students from the University of Saskatchewan. Over a span of 13 weeks, the PotashCorp Kamskénow instructors travel to the same school and classroom each week for this 13 week program. Activities introduce the disciplines of biology, chemistry, computer science, geological sciences, mathematics and physics. The first 12 weekly sessions are up to 90 minutes long. The last session will be an approximately two hour visit to the University of Saskatchewan campus so students can see first-hand the scientists, laboratories, the departments and the research being undertaken in the subjects they have studied.

Please note there will be different activities offered in each level of programming. The two semesters in the PotashCorp Kamskénow 2016-17 program are: Term 1: September 12 - December 7, 2017 and Term 2: January 16- April 26, 2018.

If you have any questions please contact: Lana Elias, Director of Science Outreach, College of Arts and Science, University of Saskatchewan, phone (306) 966-5776, email (lana.elias@usask.ca).

The 2017-18 program is supported by PotashCorp, Community Initiatives Fund, NSERC, NSERC CWSE and the College of Arts and Science, University of Saskatchewan.
