Science Literacy Week: Life Finds a Way

Sep 23, 2023 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Location: Rutherford Physics Building
Outreach Event

Discover the hidden power of extremophiles, nature's tough survivors! As part of Science Literacy Week, join TSI Outreach and Physics Outreach for an afternoon of hands-on activities about these extraordinary lifeforms and what they can teach us about energy production! Activities will include making your own creature, discovering our cloud chamber, and designing the most creative energy generator you can.

Activities are geared towards kids ages 6 -12, but younger and older siblings (and parents!) are welcome. Most activities will be delivered in English, but we will have volunteers who can answer questions in French. Written materials and instructions will be available in French as well.
