The Our Kids review of Idea Lab Kids Calgary

 

One of the great things about camp is that it can grant children a broader sense of what they’re capable of, and get them in front of people who demonstrate the full extent of those capabilities. Idea Lab Kids Calgary is a great example of that. It looks like a lot of fun, and it is, but the programs also get kids working together on shared activities and projects that grow a facility with science, design, and engineering. That it’s run by a professional engineer, Anna Antencio, is part of the real substance of those experience. This is someone who knows what she’s doing, and can broadcast a personal passion for the work and for where it can take a young person. While it’s gradually changing, girls tend to be underrepresented in the science disciplines, and both for them and the boys too Antencio serves as a particularly great role model and mentor. Learning is important, thought these programs know that it can take many forms—social, personal, academic—and rightly works to develop all those areas. Three locations in Calgary mean that there’s a lot of access points, as well as a deceptively well-developed administration and resource base, both human and material. That the Idea Labs Kids programs were first developed by another woman in science, Ghazal Qureshi, is kind of nice, too. The Calgary locations were the first in Canada, after first being established in the US, though now has expanded to 87 throughout the world, including those in Ecuador and Lebanon. It’s a unique story, to be sure, and a compelling one.
