SFU Faculty of Science: Science Rendezvous & International Astronomy Day

Science Rendezvous is the largest science festival in Canada that seeks to engage the public (and especially kids!) through interactive science activities, demonstrations, and laboratory experiences at various locations across Canada every year.

To make our event extra science-y, we also celebrate International Astronomy Day with our friends from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

PLEASE NOTE: Admission is free, but registration for the shows is required.

NEW THIS YEAR - “FULL STEAM AHEAD”
We’ll be incorporating arts activities this year, to celebrate not just STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) but STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineers, Arts & Mathematics) as well!

Activities will include tours of science labs and the Trottier Observatory, the “Super Science Game Show”, invertebrate touch pools, film canister painting, sound engineering, robotics, liquid nitrogen ice-cream making, cell model building, math puzzle solving using cards and games, Chemistry magic shows at 12noon and 2 pm, the Amazing Science Chase and many more activities for the entire family!
