Drop-In Saskatchewan Science Centre Fun – Geeking Out!
Saturday, July 14, 9:00 to 12:00

With Great Power – When you flip through the pages of a comic book, do you ever wonder about superpowers?  We will use science to explain certain superpowers by exploring coding, electricity and how they relate to some famous superheroes.

Building Better – Raise the roof!  Literally!  In this workshop you will learn all about buildings and create some amazing structures.  We will explore stories like the Three Little Pigs and gain an understanding of how you can make some great (or not so great) houses like they did!

Healthy Planet, Healthy Life – There are few things that are as amazing as our beautiful planet Earth.  Learn about some challenges that scientists are facing in the environment as well as some technology that they use to measure changes.  Learn about how animals and humans fit in, and how we can stay healthy as well!

Everyone welcome!  We’ll see you there!

Each fun and interactive program includes an element that every participant takes home. Geared towards children in grades K to 6.  Space is limited.
