Toronto, ON – Science Rendezvous, Canada’s largest national science festival is coming on May 11. Over 2,000 of Canada’s greatest innovators, researchers, engineers, and scientists, from 80 partner organizations will open their doors and close city streets to present exciting demonstrations, hands-on activities, and explosive experiments.
Sparking the curiosity of young minds from Grade 6 to 12, Science Rendezvous has something for the whole family.
Science Rendezvous is truly an iconic national event. Toronto alone has 17 venues participating, including 4 universities, 2 hospitals, research institutes, the Ontario Science Centre, and libraries. Across Canada, there will be experiments and activities for the kids, lectures for the adults, and interactive demonstrations for people of all ages, and all of them are free.
“Our goal is to inspire the next generation of researchers and innovators by bringing them face-to-face with the leaders of today and reinvigorating the fun side of science. That is why the Science Rendezvous festival is so important, it brings all the sciences and scientists together at one time to take science to the streets – where the public can really get into it,” said Kelsey Miller, Science Rendezvous executive director.
With over 300 events across 30 cities and thousands of activities, it is Canada’s largest celebration of science, coast-to-coast, and literally opens the doors of over $5-billion in state-of-art research laboratories to the Canadian public.
