What's Happening at
Science FUNday?


Our interactive demonstrations scattered throughout the event will run all day. We teach kids topics ranging from anatomy to zoology, and everything in between. Extract DNA from strawberries, play with dry ice bubbles, launch smoke rings, learn about the science of music, create your own slime, look at real specimens through a microscope, and learn all about the awesome human body! 

Special guests: Discover Coding, Doctors Against Tragedies, and various UAlberta student groups
