Course Streams

Enrichment Courses – These courses are designed for students who are confident in math concepts at their grade level and are looking for greater challenges and new ways to stimulate their interest in math. For those already familiar with our past “Enriching Minds” clubs and camps, these courses will be in a similar vein, adapted for the online experience. We will be offering some special themes and formats this Spring.

Math Circle Camps – Math Circle provides students with an opportunity to learn to solve problems that foster mathematical thinking. Campers will get creative when investigating problems that are “easy to pose, challenging to solve, require connections among several concepts and techniques, and lead to significant math ideas.” (Wikipedia).

Project-Based Math Camps – Campers will discover the endless connections of mathematics to the world around us through the project-based camps. Through mini activities, crafts, and games, campers will build meaningful hands-on math projects.

Algorithm & Coding Camps – The strong and beautiful relationship between Algorithms, Coding and Math will be introduced to young coders in this camp. Building on math knowledge, like geometry, solving math puzzles, and learning key programming concepts, students code together to solve challenges and mini projects.

Technical Requirements

Online classes will be taught live on Zoom, and materials will be organized on Google Classroom. Both platforms are free, and students will receive an invitation link a week prior to the course start date.

Does medicine = doctor? Often that’s how it is perceived but even before you get into medical school, you’ll need to choose a program of study at a university.

The Faculty of Medicine’s Youth Summer Program (MED YSP) at University of Toronto offers an engaging, educational, and fun program to learn about science, research, and the wide array of medical careers.

This summer meet students from across Canada and over 10 different countries; talk to instructors, professors; do at-home activities; get tips on how to prep for university; compete in The Great Game Show; have a chance to win prizes, and much more!

Choose from four disciplines to explore your curiosity or to expand on your knowledge:

1) In the physiology module, understand how your body works; whether it’s from filtering 180 L of blood a day to keeping your body in balance or how all your systems spring into action during a fight-or-flight situation.

2) In molecular biology, get down to the DNA level and learn how a single base pair change in our DNA can have catastrophic consequences. With recent advances in genetics the future of personalized medicine will be yours.

3) In pharmacology & toxicology, learn how drugs work and how your body responds. Why is it that the same drug can save someone and kill another person?

4) In microbiology, whether it’s SARS, COVID19, MERS, Ebola, or the next unknown bug, you’ll learn how microbes are transmitted; how beneficial they are to us; and how they can turn against us.
