Science Rendezvous gives kids a chance to celebrate science
Science Rendezvous took place at Queen's University over the weekend, attracting people from all over Kingston. Participants explored 50 demonstrations and workshops at a variety of locations. Events included talks by Queen’s professors Barrie Frost and Phil Jessop and a lecture by CBC Radio’s Quirks and Quarks host Bob MacDonald. “The whole goal of this is to get people celebrating science. I think we have something for just about everybody,” says Lynda Colgan, associate professor and coordinator of the Community Outreach Centre in the Faculty of Education.
