Today: Carleton U Science and Engineering Activities for Kids

First of all, it's a rainy Saturday so your kids might be hanging off of you as you try to enjoy your coffee, expressing their boredom. So, naturally, the first thing comes to mind is science! Right? Well, it should be because Carleton U has two great family-oriented events going on today to keep your kids busy (and maybe even teach them something):

1. Engineering workshops: Take the kids to the Canal Building lobby (see campus map) between 10am and 12pm  for a series of short workshops to build snap circuits, balloon cars and earthquake towers. (That last one sounds amazing!)

Too short notice? (I know, I know I just found out myself, sorry!) Then how about this one later tonight:

2. Chemistry Magic Show! This one is at 5pm at the outdoor theatre between Southam and Paterson Halls (or indoors at Theatre B if the rain doesn't stop). Recommended for ages 5 and up. Based on the preview video, it looks like a fantastic time: lots of fire, explosions and loud noises.



Happy rainy Science Saturday to you!
