A science exposition will return to Nanaimo after a tw0-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Non-profit Nanaimo Science will resurrect its Science Saturday event, but rebranded as Science Sunday Expo, on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 9-11 a.m. at Country Club Centre.
“The morning will be packed with over 25 exhibitors from across Vancouver Island,” a press release stated. “Nanaimo Science will also be hosting many hands-on science fun zones to challenge kids and their families: KEVA block building, windtunnel and Bernoulli blower, inertia towers, and more.”
Among those hosting exhibits, Fishing for Fun Nanaimo, Nanaimo Foodshare, Mid-Island Lego Users Group, Vancouver Island Marmot Recovery, numerous Vancouver Island University departments, Mosaic Forest Management, SEAMOR Marine and the Victoria Bug Zoo.
Tickets are available at Nanaimo Science’s studio and the information booth, both at Country Club Centre. Admission is $5 or $20 for a family pass. Children two and under will be admitted free.
Rotary Club of Nanaimo Daybreak will also be at the event selling 50-50 raffle tickets, the press release said.
After two years, Elaine Parker, Nanaimo Science executive director, said it will be good to hold the event again.
“Families are going to be blown away by the diversity of things to explore and opportunities to learn with Nanaimo Science and all our wonderful partners,” she said in the press release.
