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.
