Prototype Project

Semester-long, hands-on design mentorship program for junior high and high school students

TELUS Spark’s Prototype Project mentors students alongside their teachers over a four month period to design, build, test and refine their own interactive science centre exhibits. Through the Design Thinking process, students explore a variety of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) concepts while immersed in a hands-on, project-based learning opportunity.

Rate: $14 per student
