There was a focus on math and science for youth at at Laurier Brantford on Saturday.
But it was only a small taste of what the school will to offer this summer.
Eight-year-old Cameron Cowan had quite a reaction as instructor Nikki Cameron helped him with an experiment to extract banana DNA .
Cameron was joined by siblings Ethan, 6, Laurel, 10, and Ainsley, 11, at the one-day session, which offered a sneak peek of the Summer STEM Camp for youth aged 5 to 13 being held at Laurier Brantford in July.
STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
The camp is put on by registered charity Partners in Research, which aims to provide STEM knowledge for youth.
Four one-week STEM camp sessions begin July 7, July, 14, July 21 and July 28.
