It was a day of scientific learning and family fun as Science Rendezvous once again filled the Rogers K-Rock Centre on Saturday, May 13.

Thousands of attendees at the 10tjh annual event had the chance to meet and talk to scientists, engage in scientific experiments and learn about the excitement and possibilities of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Among the more than 60 family-oriented activities were a Math Midway, building a kaleidoscope, exploring space inside a pop-up planetarium, and Canada's first Green Chemistry Magic Show

Demonstrations and experiments were put on by researchers and students from Queen’s University, as well as from the Royal Military College of Canada, St. Lawrence College and a number of community science groups.
