Science World brings hands-on science to Ashcroft

Science World is hosting a public Night of Family Science at Ashcroft Elementary on March 15.

Science World British Columbia is bringing its zany brand of science to Ashcroft on March 15! Ashcroft Elementary will host Science World and the community for an evening of science fun, exploration and celebration.

Everyone is invited to the Night of Family Science, a free family event that features spectacular live science shows from Science World’s professional demonstration team. Visitors can create simple science projects at the make-and-take stations or experience science phenomena first hand by spinning like a figure skater and other fun science activities. Budding engineers will have the opportunity to test their paper airplane creation skills at the Iron Science competition.

Leading up to the Night of Family Science, Science World On The Road will be bringing textbook concepts to life and inspiring children to learn more about science and technology by presenting live science shows to students in Cache Creek, Clinton and Lytton throughout the week.

“We are delighted for the opportunity to have Science World share the wonders and mysteries of science with our community in a special evening event! says Grant Reilly, principal of Ashcroft Elementary.

“We’re thrilled to be heading to Ashcroft for this Night of Family Science,” says Bryan Tisdall, president and CEO of Science World British Columbia. With community collaborators and our school and partner connections throughout the province, Science World can provide dynamic experiences to showcase the fun and relevance of science to children, teens and parents with our typical Science World flair.”

The public is invited to the Night of Family Science on March 15, from 6-9 pm at Ashcroft Elementary School, 711 Hill St.

Science World British Columbia is a charitable non-profit organization that engages British Columbians in science and inspires future science and technology leadership throughout the province.
