Science World is bringing its unique and entertaining science shows to several Chilliwack schools this week.
The Vancouver-based science centre’s On The Road team will be visiting nine elementary and middle schools from today (Jan. 27) to Friday, Jan. 31.
Last school year, Science World On The Road visited 40,000 students at 199 schools in 89 communities across the province. On The Road’s high-energy gymnasium presentations are curriculum linked and will provide students with unforgettable science experiences.
That year, they were in Chilliwack at Highroad Academy where they presented wild weather demonstrations to a group of elementary students with topics including snow, acid rain, tornadoes and the sun.
“We are thrilled to be visiting schools in Chilliwack,” said Jo-Ann Coggan, director of community outreach for Science World. “It’s a chance to ignite wonder and empower dreams in students, and illustrate that science is for everyone.”
Science World is a B.C.-based charitable organization that engages the people of B.C. in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics) literacy. Their mission is to ignite wonder and empower dreams through science and nature.
