Information for Students

 The Discovery Centre in partnership with Imhotep’s Legacy Academy (ILA) will hold summer camps for students interested in plant science, gardening, and hydroponic growing.

Campers will discover and learn about various hands-on planting and gardening techniques and participate in planting a shared plot at various locations.

The Sprouting Science Camps are FREE for African Nova Scotian students, ages 8-12.

Students should select only one camp of choice closest to them as  the content will be the same for all camp sites.
