Join us for our third annual celebration of science—an event for educators, writers, librarians and parents. Find out how to inspire young minds to love science and math through interesting science books, simple hands-on activities and science collections!

Featured Scientist

Dr. David Close (traditional name Himko-kaps-kap) of the Aboriginal Fisheries Research Centre will share his passion for protecting the Pacific lamprey—an eel-like fish with a large, sucking mouth full of horny teeth. Through cutting-edge science and traditional knowledge he furthers our understanding of one of the oldest native fish species and why it is disappearing in British Columbia.

Featured BC Science Writers

Dianna Bonder, illustrator of Leon’s Song; Alex Gabriel, science centre/museum interpreter and writer; Tanya Kyi, author of the 50 Questions Series; Shar Levine and Leslie Johnston, authors of over 70 hands-on science books such as Backyard Science, Nature Science, Projects for a Healthy Planet; Michelle Mulder, science enthusiast.

Here’s your chance to visit one of Vancouver’s premier museums and be treated to a guided tour! Learn about their fascinating collection and about their exciting programs. Did we mention the best part? This year the event is FREE! Who could turn down a fun-filled morning featuring the skeleton of a blue whale?
