Science World is bringing a series of 30-minute shows over four days for families for free at Woodgrove Centre.
Science World On the Road runs March 23-26, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the water clock.The high energy shows will explore a wide range of topics using flying rubber chickens, hair raising electrical experiments, and maybe even a fireball.
In between the science shows, children can take part in free science on the spot activities from noon to 2 p.m. In addition to a Keva plank building area, there will be an area where visitors of all ages can try some of the science demonstrations from the show including a Van de Graaff generator to make hair stand up, spinning platform, leaf blower and beach ball.
Another station will demonstrate fun science activities that people can make at home with repurposed materials such as a ping pong ball launcher, paper planes, helicopters, and other flying toys made with recycled newspaper, magazines and telephone books.
“It is always rewarding to share our amazing live shows around the province,” said Bronwyn McNeil, in a press release. “Having grown up in Nanaimo, I am particularly excited to bring these spectacular science activities back to my home town.”
