Science Rendezvous

Science Rendezvous

On Saturday, May 11th, 2019, from 10 am to 3 pm, the University of Guelph-Humber (UofGH) will host a free, interactive, all ages science festival as part of Science Rendezvous.
Science Rendezvous is an annual event that opens science lab doors to the local communities.
More than 300 festival events are taking place simultaneously in over 30 cities across Canada. Festivalgoers get a chance to participate in hands-on-experiments, interact with students, and see amazing scientific demonstrations.

Last year UofGH festivalgoers took part in experiments, live demos and kid-friendly activities taking place throughout the day. For example, they had a chance to study anatomy models of the hand, the muscles and bones (take them apart and put together again!), they learned about fingerprints, investigated a “bank robbery” themed CSI station, and could also get their hand-strength measured. The little ones (and the not so little), took part in a “bugtastic” scavenger hunt, experienced the world through virtual reality, and created their own fossils.

This year, University student volunteers will lead activities in anatomy, neuroscience, health & fitness, and forensic science, and much more! Attendees of all ages, 0 to 99+ are welcome!
This year’s theme is STEAM big. Festivalgoers will be inspired to dream big about Science Technology Engineering Art & Math through all that we see around us every day.

“This festival is a really great way for our students to not only showcase the science that happens here through their programs, but also to allow them to share, show and teach others what they’ve learned,” said Kinesiology Assistant Program Head Dr. Agnes Coutinho. “Our students combine efforts and work together across all academic programs and years of study. Importantly, it is a great opportunity for visiting younger students and their families to have a chance to see the UofGH campus, interact directly with current students and even some alumni!”
