This past Thursday my history/museum friends and I checked out the special event Science by Night that took place at the Canadian Museum of Nature. This was a free event that included a variety of fun activities that encouraged visitors to get up close and personal with science and the science experts that normally spend their time behind the scenes at the museum.
Needless to say, it was a pretty darn cool night, and we scienced pretty hard. I tried to photograph everything that was happening, but there was actually just too much happening to really capture it all, so what follows is really just a small selection of a few of the things on offer that night, as well as a few of my favourite displays that I always enjoy when I visit this museum.
All in all, Science by Night was a lot of fun! If you like cool science things, and learning more about our world and history through science, then this is a great chance to get hands on and actually talk to the experts! It’s also great for all ages, so it’s very family appropriate, and free! If you find yourself in the area this time next year, I would definitely recommend checking it out! If you happened to attend this year’s event, what did you think? Was there one activity in particular that twirled your clock? Feel free to comment and share!
