About the project

FVES STEAM is a collaborative Reading Week project with Fraser Valley Elementary School. Fraser Valley is a recognized IB school located in Langley. You will be involved in a 3 Day S.T.E.A.M. project with a group of students of mixed ages from K-7. You will lead various design challenges connected to S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) concepts. These activities help develop computational thinking, design application, leadership, teamwork, and critical thinking skills in students of all ages.

UBC student volunteers will have the opportunity to work closely with K-7 students, teachers, as well as student leaders, to lead and facilitate activities. You will act as a role model and guide to inspire and engage young students.
