Freestyle Fridays

Youth involved with Ethos Lab programs are empowered with core skills and self belief to pursue post secondary education and career paths that are innovative and emerge as leaders in our societies.

Freestyle Fridays is a weekly, drop in style, Ethos Lab program that offers an introduction to science, technology, engineering, applied arts, and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M)  innovation through games, activities, and immersion. It’s a chance for current Ethos Lab youth to meet and connect with new Ethos Lab youth in a safe community centered environment.

Drop in gym…but make it S.T.E.A.M innovation

The purpose of Freestyle Friday is to introduce and welcome youth into the Ethos Lab community and the world of Science, technology, engineering, applied arts, and mathematics. Freestyle Friday is a concept that follows the Friday youth drop-in model, but with intention. These nights are no cost, open to everyone, with the hopes that they inspire and engage youth wherever they are on their innovation journey! Most importantly they include FOOD, FUN, and FAMILY. Our vision is for Freestyle Fridays should be the chosen youth evening for all of Vancouver and the greater community.

What experience level is needed for my youth to register them?

Ethos Lab provides foundational knowledge and experiences in STEAM. So everyone at all levels is welcome! Our faculty is trained to meet them where they are and support them along the way.

My youth is not Black…can I still register them?

YES! Ethos Lab for everyone, by us – meaning we are Black led organization but we are open to all youth. We intentionally fuse Black culture into science, technology, engineering, applied arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M) programming to encourage inclusion, acceptance, and representation.

I can't afford this…are they any options?

YES! We have a lot of scholarships available for youth who want to attend our programs and camps. Please email us at with which camp you are interested in registering your youth for and we will get back to you. 

My youth is going into grade 8 in Fall 2024, should I put them into 5-7 offers or 8- 12 offers?

In the Summer, the way we structure our camps is based on the grade they just finished. So if they just completed grade 7 they would still fall within the grade 5-7 category. If you were really hoping to register them for one of the grade 8 – 12 camps please email us at
