Inspiring the Next Generation of Canadian Shipbuilders

For a third summer, students from ages 5 – 14 participated in Shipbuilding Summer Camps with SuperNOVA. Supported through the Irving Shipbuilding Nova Scotia Community College Centre of Excellence, the camps are designed to teach children about how ships are built, who builds them, principles like buoyancy, propulsion, and electricity, and ocean sciences. 

Six camps were offered this summer in the following regions:

  • Shelburne, NS
  • Sipe’knekatik, NS
  • Truro, NS
  • Annapolis Valley First Nation, NS
  • Waycobah, NS
  • Acadia First Nation, NS 

SuperNOVA offers community-based camps and experiences in science, technology, engineering and math across Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. To find out more about the camps, visit
