The Our Kids review of Idea Lab Kids Oakville

 

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 exemplify the full extent of those capabilities. Idea Lab Kids 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 the Idea Labs Kids programs were first developed by a woman in science, Ghazal Qureshi, adds a nice perspective to the venture. While it’s gradually changing, girls tend to be underrepresented in the science disciplines, and both for them and the boys too Qureshi serves as a particularly great role model and mentor, even if she isn’t front and centre in participants minds. Learning is important, thought these programs know that it can take many forms—social, personal, academic—and rightly works to develop all those areas. The Calgary locations were the first in Canada, with Oakville a close second, after first being established in the US. Idea Lab has now expanded to 87 throughout the world, including those in Ecuador and Lebanon. That adds a depth to the programs, with rich human and material resources beyond what you see at first glance. New offerings are developed continually, by a dedicated team tasked to grow the programs while keeping abreast of best practices and emerging technologies.


The 2020 Experience at Idea Lab Kids Oakville

IDEA MEASURES: Your health and safety is our priority!

1. We're sanitizing everything on our campus upon arrival (door handles, toilet handles, water fountains, sink knobs, tables, chairs) and de at departure. Hands will be washed frequently throughout the day and when switching classes.

2. To ensure your health and safety we are doign forehead temperature checks upon entrance. Anyone with a temperature of 99 degrees will be sent home. There would be zero tolerance for any cold/flu-like symptoms including allergies.

3. We will require pick=up and drop-off of children outside of the campus to minimize health risks, unless there is a legitimate need for you to enter.

4. We are only running classes with smaller capacity students. (10:1, or 8:1 at the very smallest)

5. All students must register ahead of time to ensure you have a spot when arriving onto campus. A table is set for check ins/check-out.

6. We're keeping social distancing a priority - Students will sit every other chair and there won't be direct touch/play with other students

7. Food Sharing is not going to be allowed. Lunch and snacks from home is recommended options.

8. Our floors and tables are re-designed for dictated traffic flow and workspace

9. Restroom/water fountain use will be one at a time. We suggest to bring a water bottle to avoid using the fountain.

10. Our staff will be wearing masks and face shields throughout our campus hours.

Director's Message

Darcy Roland, Assistant Director

Walk into an IDEA Lab Kids classroom and you’ll see a hub of activity – robot battles, drones hovering or kids coding.

If it looks like play, you might wonder, what skills are they learning? Plenty!

Some camps are teaching kids teamwork as together they program drones to hover and soar. Others teach kids how to excel in Minecraft, coding and world building.

What makes our camps unique is they combine soft skills such as cooperation, following instructions and teamwork with the many tech skills needed to design, build, program and code.

Tech skills are increasingly essential.

STEM jobs are growing faster than average (10 percent growth compared with 5 percent growth in non-STEM fields).

STEM jobs pay a national average salary of $87,570, nearly twice the average for non-STEM jobs ($45,700).

According to one study, 85 per cent of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t even been invented yet. If that seems high, remember a time, not so long ago, when social media manager, web developer and digital marketer roles didn’t exist – now nearly every company has someone in those roles.

These are just a few high-tech, high fun options for kids of all ages this summer.

Each camp adventure combines multiple high-tech skills — coding, programming, 3D printing, robotics or drones — so you and your children get the most out of your summer camp experience

A few of the things we have found that kids love:

1. We give kids lots of time to explore. There’s so little time in the school day for STEM activities, especially open-ended learning. Our programs give students time to explore an idea and find their own answers.

2. Is your child interested in lots of things? In our program, they don’t have to specialize. They can dive into cooking, robotics, art, engineering and science all in one place!

3. We added lots of hands-on learning. Whether your child love creating artistic masterpieces or learning coding, each class brings in hands-on activities to help your child express him or herself and gain new skills.

4. We make time for physical education too! We get it, kids need time after school to burn off energy, so we add dodgeball and active games to our schedule.

5. One of the best parts of IDEA Lab Kids is that kids can explore high-tech equipment hands-on. Your child can learn how circuits work, program a drone, explore 3D printing or tinker with robots, and you don’t have to invest in expensive technology at home.

6. Kids want to explore with other kids excited about STEM, and here they have the opportunity to work in teams to program a drone or create a robot.

7. Kids also love a little healthy competition in creating battle bots or chess matches. Everyone loves a challenge and opportunity to display their skills in our showcases.
