Science Funfest is an open house event that takes place at Natural Resources Canada’s Booth Street Complex, at the corner of Carling Avenue and Booth Street in Ottawa. It’s a wonderful opportunity for children and anyone interested in science to engage in presentations and gain hands on science experience by participating in activities that will showcase the importance of science in a fun and interactive way. Last year’s event featured approximately 70 interactive exhibits on subjects ranging from ‘Slime’ to ‘Canada’s Forest Insects’.
You can: Bring your rocks and fossils for identification; go chocolate chip cookie mining; explore the secrets of the wind tunnel; see exotic insects; or have fun with DNA. There is also face painting, balloons and much, much more!
