UBC Science Rendezvous
May 11, 2019, 2019
Join us for The University of British Columbia’s 2019 Science Rendezvous festival. Science Rendezvous is an annual festival held across Canada showcasing the Art in Science. Science Rendezvous theme this year is “STEAM big” encouraging new exciting collaborations between scientists and artists, science and art.
On Saturday May 11 (10 AM – 2 PM) race across the University to complete our Science Chase! From the Old Barn Community Centre to the Department of Chemistry, intrepid visitors will race across campus and experience the power of STEAM! Check out art-science performances (poetry and 3D-printed violin), take a ride on a hovercraft, discover micro-organisms in the pond, and learn about the tectonic forces that shape and alter our world. Make it through all the explosions, workshops, and hands-on experiments to emerge a science victor! Cool prizes await – including coupons for free summer camp spots, circuit kits, dinosaur bone samples, and Science Rendezvous T-shirts!
