winteraction: Open Science Network

  • 1657 Charles Street Vancouver, BC, V5L 2T4 Canada (map)

Poppers in the Park

Grandview Park (1657 Charles St, Vancouver)

11:00 to 3:00

Come see what happens when a little chemistry happens in a film canister. 

The Open Science Network participates in science outreach events throughout the region.  We will be participating in a Community Science Celebration at Britannia Community Centre with a variety of hands on science related activities.  The indoor activities will include math puzzles; a microscope with different specimens to examine; a plasma ball; and other interactive displays.  Outside, we will have some Alka-Seltzer poppers to demonstrate the principles of pressure and chemical reactions.

The goal of the day is to bring together people to learn a little about science, encourage active participation in science and bring out a sense of wonder.  We look forward to the opportunity to do an outdoor activity as the majority of the events we attend are indoors.
