Following the presentation, students were guided to the workshops they
had chosen in their on-line pre-registration. Mostly workshops were hands-on
interactive labs with a Science or Mathematics teacher; there was also
a workshop for parents, one for students coming from French high schools
and one for students interested in Science Plus. Students and parents
elect to take a tour of the resource areas.
The final session
was held in the student mall, where door prizes were awarded, lunch was
served, winning Science Fair projects were on display, and more information
was offered on an individual basis...
