Throughout the summer, our off-campus teams visit communities that are beyond the reach of our main campus programs in Waterloo.
At the beginning of the week, campers give the "team van" a unique paint job that everyone in the community comes to recognize! From there, the week is filled with engaging, hands-on engineering and science activities.
Many of our activities make use of our camp laptops, LEGO and electronics kits which were purchased exclusively for our non-Waterloo campers!
The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is an exciting week-long enrichment program for students hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo. This year the program will run through August 12 - 16, 2013. The school offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on quantum cryptography < a cutting-edge field that utilizes the fascinating laws of quantum mechanics to develop unbreakable encryption that protects communication.
