The Science Centre welcomes aspiring scientists of all ages with free admission on November 9th. Visitors can touch and play with almost everything in the entire building. Traverse along the climbing wall, create a marble fast-track and learn about the science of sound—while making much more noise than allowed at home. Guests can also build a Keva Block tower, fiddle with fixtures on the busy board, and visit with the critters. Throughout the day the Van de Graaff generator will be running, interspersed with assorted science demonstrations.
This is a great opportunity for first-time visitors to check out what there is to offer at the Science Centre, and it’s also a great opportunity to pay-it-forward in the community. The Science Centre is hosting a BBQ fundraiser on this day, with all proceeds going towards purchasing annual memberships for families who may not be able to afford it. The Okanagan Science Centre proudly partners with the Salvation Army for this annual initiative and hopes to make 2019 another successful year.
