The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design and Math) Design Process Boot Camp enables Grade 8-12 students to complete design process courses that are linked to non-credit general admission college requirements and address immediate and future workforce needs. This innovative program enables Grade 8-12 students to gain foundational knowledge, insight, and understanding of the Engineering design process as it relates to mathematical and scientific reasoning, research and evaluative skills, knowledge analysis, synthesis, and integration theoretical knowledge applied to practice working together as essential employability and life skills including but not limited to critical thinking, problem solving, and communications.
Students in grades 8 through 12 (ages 12 to 18) will have the opportunity to work with STEAM educators from UBC and SFU here at the VPC Richmond campus.
The STEAM Design process program enables students to complete a range of Science, Technology, Math, entry level Engineering courses that will help to inform their decisions regarding their future field of study and/or career path.
