We’re Going Mad…About Science!

March 5, 2014

This Spring Break, The Fraser River Discovery Centre is looking for budding biologists, fledgling physicists, mini meteorologists…I could go on, but there are far more exciting things to discuss than my ability to annoy alliteratively. Did I mention juvenile geographers? Hopeful hydrologists?

I may have lost a few marbles over word games, but there’s no doubt that here at the Fraser River Discovery Centre we are positively mad about science! As one of the most important and unique watersheds in the world, the Fraser River is a hub for scientific research in a variety of disciplines. That’s why we’re so excited to announce our upcoming Spring Break event Mad About Science on Saturday, March 22nd from 1pm to 4pm!

We’ve enlisted the help of some fantastic organizations to make this day even better. Special guests from UBC and internationally-recognised science educators Mad Science will be bringing some amazing activities to try. It’s going to be a terrific celebration of science (one might even say scien-terrific) with interactive water testing experiments, a raft-building challenge, fun with dry ice, and – our feature ticketed event – Mad Science’s live Fire and Ice show at 2pm! Tickets for this fantastic educational show are on sale now at the Discovery Centre for only $7 per 1 child + 1 adult. If that isn’t enough to get your lab coat fluttering, each ticket also includes a free kids meal at Boston Pizza New West!

We can't wait to see their Fire and Ice show!

We’re really excited to be teaming up with so many amazing people from around the Lower Mainland for this event. Collaboration with other groups and businesses who share our passion for learning and the Fraser River is one of the best things about working at the Discovery Centre. I’m no mathematician, but if two heads are better than one, and many hands make light work, then surely four organizations working together can make Mad About Science at least four times as fun!

So make sure you and your – last one, I promise – embryonic ecologist don’t miss Mad About Science at the Fraser River Discovery Centre on Saturday, March 22nd from 1pm to 4pm. Give us a call at 604 521-8401 or stop by in person at 788 Quayside Drive in New Westminster, B.C. today to buy your Fire and Ice tickets before they’re gone (and – OK, I fibbed – wouldn’t your little limnologist be sad about that?)!
