Super Science Club (SSC), our program for underserved schools and community centres, is made possible by generous donors and partners like HSBC Bank Canada.
This year, Super Science Club (SSC) turns 20. And though the Science World after-school program has had a major transformation, its goal has never been more clear: “To spark curiosity and a love for science in kids from underserved schools and community centres,” says program specialist Kiki Kirkpatrick.
One of those community centres is Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Every week, kids in their after-school program got to access SSC thanks to the shift into virtual and remote learning.
Kiki says, “The biggest triumph this year has been figuring out it’s possible to develop and maintain deep connections with students when we're online.”
