After seeing this event, students will never think of science as a boring subject again.
As part of their five-day tour that began on Jan. 11, Science World will be bringing fun into local classrooms across B.C. This includes schools in Kamloops who will continue to enjoy the science facilitators’ weird, wacky and jaw-dropping brand of science from Jan. 13 to 15. These two days comprise the last leg of the tour, called On the Road. The traveling science program will also visit Westwold, Barriere and Brennan Creek.
“Many students find science difficult, abstract or intimidating,” says Pauline Finn, vice president of Community Engagement at Science World. “But with Science World’s playful approach to learning, science and technology, kids can see the concepts in their textbooks come alive with colour, humour and flair.”
The science tour will present three shows to the schools called It’s a Gas, Sporty Science and Energy in Action. Today, On the Road will be at Dallas Elementary and Westwold Elementary. On Jan. 14, they’ll be visiting Neqweyqwelsten Elementary in Barriere and Brennan Creek. On the last day, Jan. 15, they’ll be at Rayleigh Elementary and Kamloops Christian School. The event is part of the programs provided by BC PALS (British Columbia Program for the Awareness and Learning of Science). Through government funding, BC PALS is able to provide Science World programs to students once a year for free. This year marks the last year of a five-year commitment from the Ministry of Education to fund BC PALS.
