A Science World exhibition will be returning to the Thompson Rivers University campus on March 3, 2012.

“We are pleased to announce the return of Science World to our region,” says Area D CRD director Deb Bischoff.

On March 3,  2012, she says  local organizations, schools, and the TRU science department and regional businesses will take part in this fun and educational community event.

The event is being organized by the Williams Lake Community Science Celebration Committee headed by TRU’s local chemistry professor Marten Lettinga.

“The committee is recruiting volunteers to assist in organizing, this memorable day for both young and old,” Bischoff says.

The TRU gymnasium was filled with all sorts of exhibits and science experiment demonstrations for this year’s Science World event held earlier this year.

“This is a great opportunity for families and kids to experience Science first-hand, when they might not necessarily have that chance otherwise.” Lettinga says. He says a very successful program is Science World’s Big Science For Little Hands workshops for kindergarten and pre-school educators.

The Science World On The Road Tour, will be in the schools the week leading up to the main show at the local TRU campus giving distant communities and schools a chance to quench their knowledge for science.

 

Anyone interested in volunteering with the Williams Lake Community Science Celebration Committee is asked to call 250-392-8112 or e-mail mlettinga@tru.ca
