If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that science matters. It helps us solve problems, find solutions (or mix them!), and make life better.
From dinosaurs to robots to hoverboards to vaccines to things that go boom, science is also really cool.
Canadian science lovers get to celebrate twice a year: in September, during Science Literacy Week, and in May, during Science Rendezvous. And Science Rendezvous 2022 is almost upon us!
If you’re not familiar, Science Rendezvous aims to bring regular people into contact with scientists of all stripes. It’s a chance to learn about science and what scientists do, and a chance for people of all ages to participate in science. And unlike museums and science centres, which usually charge entrance fees, every experience at Science Rendezvous is totally free!
This year, I’ll be talking about Ice Age mammals at Science Rendezvous Kingston. My student workshops are fully booked, but there’s still space in my virtual teacher workshop on May 12. I’ll be introducing an incredible new palaeontology teaching kit that educators across Canada can bring into their classrooms for free. If you are a teacher or know one, spread the news! I’d love to see you.
If you’re near Kingston, be sure to check out all the other amazing activities on the schedule. And if you’re not, no worries! Science Rendezvous is a national event – check the main webpage to find events happening near you.
Get out and get sciencey, everyone!
