NanoCamp 2020

Date and Time



University of Guelph


The Nanoscience program at the University of Guelph is excited to announce its first ever NanoCamp! This initiative introduces the world of Nanoscience to motivated high school students through a 5-day summer camp. NanoCamp will run July 6-10, 2020.
Students will learn about the novel properties of materials that drives research in the cutting-edge field of Nano and its contributions to modern science and technology. This emerging research field will be explored through a combination of directed lectures, hands-on activities and guided experiments in a co-operative, team-building environment. 
Participants will explore a blend of physics and chemistry and how they merge into the exciting and ever-growing field of nanoscience. 
There is a small registration fee of $100 to be paid upon acceptance to NanoCamp (lunches are provided). Students are responsible for arranging their transportation to and from the University Center at the University of Guelph daily. Space is limited to 22 participants, and applicants will be selected on the basis of the strength of their application. 
NanoCamp is for students who are:
  • In grades 10 and 11
  • Fluent in English 
  • Have a strong academic record in their high school courses in science, chemistry, physics and mathematics 
  • Have a strong interest in experimental work and continuing to post-secondary studies in STEM
Check back regularly for more details.
