The free event Nov. 2 at CNC features shows, demonstrations and challenges

Science World is bringing its unique and entertaining science shows to Quesnel, Hixon and Prince George next week.

Science World’s On The Road team will be visiting these communities from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1, performing at schools and will be participating in a Community Science Celebration planned for Saturday, Nov. 2 in Quesnel.

Last school year, Science World On The Road visited 40,000 students at 199 schools in 89 communities across the province, according to a press release from Science World.

This trip will be to the schools in this region that the team has yet to visit.

On The Road’s high-energy gymnasium presentations are curriculum-linked and will provide students with unforgettable science experiences, according to Science World.

The On The Road team will wrap up its school visits by participating in the Community Science Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the College of New Caledonia Quesnel Campus.

This free community event will include eye-popping shows, demonstrations and challenges, along with an opportunity to meet people in the community doing cool science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) every day. Local exhibitors will include Exploration Place, Two Rivers Gallery, Baker Creek Enhancement Society, The Antique Machinery Park, Genome BC and the City of Quesnel. The College of New Caledonia will also be opening up its labs to the public.

“We are thrilled to be participating in this Community Science Celebration in Quesnel,” Jo-Ann Coggan, director of Community Outreach for Science World, said in the press release. “It is a showcase of the community for the community and will profile local businesses, organizations and innovators. Science World will provide fun, dynamic science experiences for the whole family as part of this event.”
