More information on each session:

Explore how programming can open doors to doing mathematics in a different way than by ‘pen and paper’. Whether you are new to programming or feel ‘expert’, this lab activity will differentiate accordingly on an individual basis:

New to programming? You will get started by programming shapes and patterns in Scratch… concluding with a nice challenge to be done in pairs or individually.

You know a little of programming? Get the grey cells working on modelling the Anno’s magic seeds story through an online block coding app;

Feel expert at programming? Simulate a bouncing basketball as an application of derivatives in Snap!

Light is one of the ways we interact with the world around us. Our eyes are the first thing to tell us about our surrounding environments. Even the virtual world, which we interact with more and more each day, is brought to us via light. But just how do we capture that 3D information in a picture? In this session, we will explore how our eyes operate and communicate with us using photons.

This workshop will guide you through the development of a Space Invaders clone using the 2D game development system GameEditor. You will learn basic logical skills in order to create a game. Depending on the level of the workshop, you will also obtain basic programming skills in C. After this fun class you will be able to play your game on your PC, your Mac, or even your iPhone.

If you have any questions, please let Courtney know. Thanks again for your interest; we look for to hosting you for Math, Physics, & Computer Science Day!

More information on each session:

Visit Brock’s Anatomage Table and explore virtual anatomy! The table features human micro and macroscopic 3D anatomy systems, which enables students to interact with anatomy in a functional way.

Do you know what a blood group is? Have you ever wondered what it means when the doctor in your favourite TV show says, “we need a B-positive donor”? What does “B-positive” even stand for? How does it relate to our blood? Join us for a fun-filled lab exercise where all these questions will be answered. You will learn how blood can be classified into different groups and experience how blood typing can help in solving forensic mysteries and identifying donors for transfusions during medical emergencies.

Visit one of our Kinesiology labs and participate in an interactive clinical assessment of human performance.

Student will participate in both of the following case studies:

We’re having a baby!

Noelle is about to give birth! This simulated experience will allow you to observe the labour and delivery of a baby and help with the newborn Apgar Scoring.

Trauma in the Sim Lab

Your patient arrives in the Emerg department and the team is waiting to assess injuries, order labs and diagnostic tests, and care for the unstable patient. This interactive case study will challenge you to think quickly to help your patient.

Sport and recreation can make us feel happy, successful, connected, and included, but they can also make us feel segregated, isolated, and physically or emotionally hurt. In this interactive session, join Dr. Kyle Rich from the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies in a discussion of different theoretical perspectives that help us think about how sport and recreation can be facilitated in order to be inclusive, productive, and safe for a variety of diverse participants.

Skateboarding is an activity that is both loved and despised. What’s with these mixed feelings? Join this session and learn about the politics surrounding skateboarding and young people’s sport and play in general. Together we’ll talk about the history of skateboarding and ways that adults have attempted to control and regulate it, including thorough the development of skate parks. We’ll then talk about what the story of skateboarding tells us about how adults think about kids, especially how and where they should be spending their free time.

Outdoor recreation activities provide a number of physical, social and psychological health benefits. Through hands-on, guided activities, this workshop will show you some of the ways that outdoor recreation positively impacts people. You’ll discover the Bruce Trail (literally in our backyard!), tour Brock’s Outdoor Education Lab, and learn how engaging with the outdoor world contributes to individual’s well-being. If you have experience in the outdoors or not, all you need is an interest in healthy living. Be prepared to be outside!

Most of us want to create lives that are rich with pleasure and satisfaction, purpose and meaning, and interpersonal connections. Our free time activities and contexts are ideal spaces in which to foster these important aspects of life. This session will provide you with the chance to think about what “living well” might mean to you and to others – and will focus on the importance of recreation and free time activities in supporting mental health. The session will end with a discussion of the field of Therapeutic Recreation and how this allied health profession supports living well with disability, illness and other limiting conditions.

Leaders will provide students an insiders’ look into what it is like to be a student in this esteemed program! In this interactive session, leaders will explain the program’s structure and experiential opportunities. Hearing personal insights from leaders, students will learn what SPMA is all about, including the insights on program curricula, expectations of class settings, and opportunities available for students during their time in the program. With the upcoming 2021 Canada Summer Games, the leaders will highlight the impact and enriching opportunities offered by these Major Games to be held right in Niagara!

Students will work in small teams to create and propose a solution to a real-world Sport Management issue. With the assistance of Graduate students in the program, teams will address key Sport Management concepts, such as marketing, finance, event management, policy development, and others!

If you have any questions, please let Courtney know. Thanks again for your interest; we look for to hosting you for Applied Health Sciences Day!
