Vernon Science Centre

I just thought I would post this excerpt from the OSC newsletter about a home educator's workshop. It looks interesting - I think we will attend.

A FREE workshop for homeschooling families in the Okanagan,

Tuesday, June 24, 2008; 10:00am – 12:00pm

Join OSC staff for a morning of science exploration, all about food! Your family will visit three different stations, each offering some hands-on food fun. Explore what the OSC has to offer
and network with other homeschooling families in the Okanagan.


Composting Who’s Who? (45 minute program)What do we find in the compost heap? What is the food web? Can you see life under the microscope?

Food Chemistry (45 minute program)Are the liquids we consume acids or bases? Does our food contain starch? Is there carbon dioxide in our breath?

Food for Health Gallery (30 minutes)Visit the farm, past and present; help an alien discover healthy meals; burn calories on the interactive bike; read,
interact, and discover information about food safety and security, agriculture, food packaging , labeling, and nutrition.

No pre-registration necessary - admission is free and on a first come, first served basis.
Space is limited.
This is a family program; adult supervision is required (no drop-offs)
