Fall Experience Science Day 2017
Don’t let the November rain get you down! Join us for Experience Science Day! An annual event that welcomes 200 elementary school students from Downtown East Side to UBC to experience hands-on scientific activities.  Thanks to volunteers like you this program has become highly successful and is held twice each year, reaching twice as many youths and encouraging their participation in science. We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to run hands-on science activities, including Rube Goldberg Device construction, for groups of 20-30 students in Grades 4-7.
