Science World brings wild weather demos to Highroad in Chilliwack

Highroad Academy was one of seven schools in the district that Science World visited in Chilliwack

The students at Highroad Academy got up close with science last week as Science World’s On The Road team travelled through Chilliwack stopping at seven private and public schools in the district.

The event at Highroad, presented by Emma Slipp and Carolyn Duthie of Science World, focused on weather demonstrations with topics including snow, acid rain, tornadoes and the sun.

On The Road visits more than 30,000 students each year at schools outside the Lower Mainland who might not otherwise have a chance to visit Science World at TELUS World of Science. The team’s high-energy gymnasium presentations are curriculum linked and will provide students with unforgettable science experiences.
