We finally have a bit of snow which means there will be plenty of opportunities to participate in the winter activities that we Atlantic Canadians love! This guide from Family Fun Canada is full of fun ways for you and your family to maximize family time over the weekend.
Five years after Dr. Gerhard Stroink started developing interactive science exhibits and demonstrations as part of Dalhousie University’s open house events in the 1970s, the Centre grew into a larger location on Barrington Street and became a fixture of the city’s downtown for 20 years, exposing locals and visitors alike to the exciting curiosities of STEAM with its remarkable exhibits, facilitated programming, curriculum-based workshops, and educational outreach. Dov Bercovici, the Centre’s young and ambitious CEO, set out in 2010 to transform the building into a cutting-edge facility and provide Halifax a premier cultural and educational symbol.
On January 14 and 15, the Discovery Center will host a Winter of Discovery event. This event honors the healthcare scientific heroes who have selflessly served our province and celebrates science.
