Fulford Academy hosts Science Quest camp
About a dozen students attending Queen’s University Science Quest are seeing a different campus. When one of their venues fell through, Science Quest approached Fulford Academy in Brockville. Owner Suzan Kendall, a Queen’s alumna, was more than happy to help out.
“We’re really excited about it,” says Kendall. “We’ll have 12 students from grades 4 to 6 using our classrooms and mixing in with our students.”
Queen’s Science Quest is donating $200 on Fulford Academy’s behalf to the Children of Chornobyl Canadian Fund, which was established in 1990 to provide humanitarian aid to victims of the 1986 Chornobyl nuclear disaster. “What happened at Chornobyl might also be part of the Science Quest curriculum,” says Kendall.
Founded in 2002, Fulford Academy is a unique small boarding school for international students, grades 7 to 10. It offers Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum from an English as a Second Language perspective in a safe and structured family environment. Students are well prepared linguistically, academically and culturally to apply and successfully transition into the top boarding schools in Canada and the USA.
Queen’s Science Quest is a non-profit engineering and science based program that started in 1988. It aims to spark an interest in science, technology, engineering and math in young people through educational workshops, camps and outreach programs.
