Description

Welcome to Science in the Valley- Salmon OR Ecosystems


Since 2005, Trinity Western University's Biology, Chemistry and Geography/Environmental Studies Departments host hundreds of students throughout the Fraser Valley in Science in the Valley Programs each Spring. The program offers workshops to classes in the GVRD School Districts as well as home-schooled students.
Science in the Valley helps to encourage and excite students towards further study of Science. All activities are taught with an emphasis on student "hands on" participation and a "can do" attitude.
With only one class per session, students receive personal teaching instruction from TWU's Undergraduate students.

Each student will be given a manual for use during the field trip and then upon completion of each workshop students will receive a certificate of participation.

Programs we offer:

  • Grade 4: Salmon
  • Grade 5: Eco-Systems and Human Impact
  • Grade 6: Biology
  • Grade 7: Chemistry

Details regarding each program can be found on the SIV Website (currently to be updated)

Cost:

  • All programs are $12 per student with a minimum class payment of $250.
  • Teachers and chaperones are free

Registration Process:

Please be aware that these workshops are popular and fill up VERY quickly. I will do my utmost to have your class attend, however, I am unable to promise availability. This registration is an initial request for field trip dates. Schools will be registered on a first-come-first-served basis.
Once we are fully booked, email me and I will add the remainder of the registration requests to a waitlist. Then, I will contant you asap with the information you need.

The application and registration process is as follows:

  1. Please complete an Eventbrite Registration for each class from your school.
  2. Eventbrite will email you a confirmation of registration.
  3. In several weeks, Liz will confirm all days/times booked for your school.
  4. Once confirmed, pay a $250 per class non-refundable deposit to secure your booking.
  5. Specific information will be emailed to you in the New Year.
  6. If your information changes (i.e. number of students in class), please keep Eventbrite information updated. I will rely on this information as i prepare for your field study.

If there is a need for additional program spots, more will be added as available.

Schedules can sometimes be adjusted slightly to accommodate bus transportation needs.
Please make prior arrangements, by email, with Liz Robertson if this is necessary.

Thank you for your assistance and patience as I try to make registration for Science in the Valley as efficient and fair as possible.
