The following is a description from the 2022 event – this will be updated in the fall with the 2023 event details. 

University Exploration Day is an opportunity for students to access the university campus in the areas of Arts & Science and the Dhillon School of Business.

​This event can accommodate up to 100 students. Students will spend the morning exploring in either the Faculty of Arts & Science, or in the Dhillon School of Business.  They will then cheer on the boat race teams as they race across the pool and compete in the weight challenges. Once the races are done, the students will round out their day learning more about the University of Lethbridge.

Faculty of Arts and Science: Join the Faculty of Arts & Science for a hands-on, engaging morning! On the day of the event, students will sign up for 2 of the following 6 sessions:

  • Try your hand at coding and robotics
  • Enter the lab and put your mixing skills to the test
  • Explore the micro world with iGEM
  • Learn about the science of kinesiology and use motion capture technology and simple experiments to understand what sends industrial athletes to the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat
  • Dig deep into the wonderful world of archaeology
  • Try a new angle on puzzles and problem solving


Dhillon School of Business: Join the Dhillon School of Business for a hands-on, engaging morning! Students will attend both of the following sessions:

  • Try your hand at buying and selling stocks. Learn how to buy and sell shares and see whether you make a million or lose your shirt!
  • Find out what it takes to run your own business. Try the business simulation for starting and running a new business and see how well you do!
