Science Rendezvous Kingston


10:00 am to 3:00 pm

You are invited to celebrate Kingston-area science & scientists by being in the audience when the Rogers K-Rock Centre becomes a giant Science Discovery Centre! Meet and talk to scientists, engage in scientific experiments and learn about the excitement and possibilities of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This event is free and family-oriented. There is something for everyone: The Math Midway,   Meet a great Horned Owl and a Bald Eagle,  The Chemistry Magic Show,  Robots and 3D printers!! There will be special presentations throughout the day inside the Rogers K-Rock Centre and outside on The Tragically Hip Way. Come for the day (snacks and lunch will be available at the Concession Stands) or come for an hour…regardless of the length of your visit, you will be inspired. The first 500 families will receive a Take-Home booklet filled with experiments that can be done at the kitchen sink, on the kitchen table or in the backyard as well as a free tote bag…some of which will contain additional prizes such as gift certificates, passes to local museums, merchandise and much more!
