Science World Make Road Trip To Nelson

Science World is bringing its unique and entertaining science shows to Nelson and surrounding communities. Science World’s On The Road team will be visiting these communities from April 1 to April 5, performing at schools and participating in the Community Science Celebration, on April 6 in Nelson.

Science World On The Road visits over 30,000 students each year at schools outside the Lower Mainland, who might not otherwise have a chance to visit Science World at TELUS World of Science. The team’s high-energy gymnasium presentations are curriculum linked and will provide students with unforgettable science experiences.

The On The Road team will wrap up its visit by participating in the Community Science Celebration on Saturday, April 6. This free community event will include eye-popping shows, demonstrations and challenges, along with an opportunity to meet people in the community doing cool science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) every day. The Community Science Celebration will be presented in partnership with the West Kootenay Regional Science Fair.

“We are thrilled to be participating in the Community Science Celebration in Nelson,” said Jo-Ann Coggan, Director of Community Outreach for Science World. “It is a showcase of the community for the community and will profile local businesses, organizations and innovators. Science World will provide fun, dynamic science experiences for the whole family as part of this event.”
