IMAGINING UVic is a summer camp intended to encourage young women to pursue STEM fields. The program will be held on the UVic campus, providing participants with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the university environment. 

The program will run July 2 – 5, 2024, from 10:00am to 3:30pm each day. Interactive sessions lead by cutting-edge researchers will introduce participants to new and exciting math concepts which go beyond the BC curriculum. Participants will also have various opportunities to interact and form connections with professors and graduate students in mathematics.

Collaborative problem-solving will be emphasized throughout the week through activities such as our escape room. Participants will also have the opportunity to work together to present new mathematical concepts to the rest of the group. The camp will conclude with a fun team math challenge, designed to allow participants to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned throughout the week. 

The program is open to girls (which we interpret in the broadest sense of the word) in the Victoria area who will be entering grade 11 or 12 in September 2024. We welcome non-binary, two-spirit, trans, and genderqueer individuals, as well as any other youth who identify with the program.

This program is by invitation only. In order to be considered, students must submit a personal application form, along with a reference form from a high school math or science teacher. Personal application and reference forms are both due by end of day on April 26, 2024. Late applications will only be considered if space is available.
