Science World is bringing its unique and entertaining On the Road shows to Nelson this week and participating in the Community Science Celebration on Saturday.

On The Road visits over 30,000 students each year at schools outside the Lower Mainland, who might not otherwise have a chance to visit Science World. The team’s high-energy gymnasium presentations are curriculum linked and provide students with unforgettable science experiences.

The On The Road team will wrap up its visit by participating on Saturday with a free community event at L.V. Rogers Secondary from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will include eye-popping shows, demonstrations and challenges, along with an opportunity to meet people in the community doing cool science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) every day. The Community Science Celebration will be presented in partnership with the West Kootenay Regional Science Fair.

“We are thrilled to be participating in the Community Science Celebration in Nelson,” said Jo-Ann Coggan, director of community outreach for Science World. “It is a showcase of the community for the community and will profile local businesses, organizations and innovators. Science World will provide fun, dynamic science experiences for the whole family as part of this event.”
