At IGNITE, we believe that Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic (STEM) education and physical activity should be available to ALL children, especially those in marginalized communities. Up & Atom is a free 2-day youth camp that is designed to spark and cultivate children’s interest in science while providing a safe space for sport.

Throughout the camp, participants will engage in hands-on activities led by the Discovery Centre, these activities are carefully crafted to fuel curiosity, foster a passion for STEM education, and inspire innovative thinking. They will also get an opportunity to develop their sports skills with experienced players and coaches.
