WinnipegResearch Under the MicroscopeWinnipegMay 9-13, 2016St. Boniface Hospital Research CentreThis is an invitation only event for school groups. Students from Manitoba First Nations schools will be participating in hands-on biomedical science activities to experience how medical research scientists study disease. Students will work with live cells, tissues and microscopes to explore the work of Research Centre scientists from our Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, Division of Neurodegenerative Disorders and the Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine.
WinnipegScience Odyssey Week45 Forks Market Road, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 4T6May 6-15, 2016Manitoba Children's MuseumThe Children's Museum celebrates Science Odyssey Week with a series of science-connected school programs, permanent galleries, and public events which include: A) School Programs (Nursery to Grade 5) Hands-on, Manitoba curriculum-linked educational school programs available in English, French, Basic French, and Immersion. School programs include elements of exploration, application, extension, literacy, and take-home pre- and post-activities. B) Permanent Galleries (for children under 10 and their caregivers) Unlike the no-touch exhibits at other more traditional museums, the Children's Museum's 12 permanent galleries are always ready for hands-on fun! The latest innovations in education come together with creative environments to provide a powerful learning experience that entertains as it educates. Offering Manitoba curriculum-linked layered experiences, the museum's galleries are designed to be as accessible to children as possible and integrate Partners In Play prompts as caregiver guides for those looking to engage, enhance, and support their visit. C) #SeriouslyAdult Indie Night (18A - Suitable for people 18 years of age or older): This fundraising event on May 6, 2016 is designed for adults that are young at heart. Held after regular operating hours, this event allows adults to explore the Children's Museum's galleries and experience great music from local artists while raising money to enhance exhibits, create educational programs, and help fund the Free2Play Access Program which provides free museum visits to under-supported children in Manitoba.
