FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Science World, in partnership with BC Hydro, presented a number of shows to community members in the region, including several elementary schools, between April 14th to 22nd.
It all started with multiple presentations at the Fort St. John Trade Show from April 14th to 16th.
The week following the trade show, Science World visited C.M. Finch Elementary, Alwin Holland Elementary, Anne Roberts Young Elementary, Baldonnel Elementary, Ecole Central Elementary School of the Arts, Taylor Elementary, Duncan Cran Elementary and Bert Ambrose.
The shows included Fantastic Forces, which focused on push, pull, lift, friction and drag; Earth Wind & Science, which focused on weather events and How2Science, which described how scientists observe, predict and test theories.
Duncan Cran’s vice principal, Janny Lavoie, said the presentations were fantastic and very hands-on.
“They talked a lot about force and just really science in our everyday lives,” Lavoie said.
She said the kids were very engaged and excited and looked forward to having Science World back in the future.
The principal of Baldonnel Elementary, Christine Todd, and Bert Ambrose Elementary’s principal, Laurie Wright, mirrored Lavoie’s sentiments, saying their students were also very engaged and excited about the presentations.
Wright said the presentations led to “lots of laughs” amongst the kids.
After each school presentation, the students were given materials to learn about science outside the classroom.
The Science World presenters finished visiting the region with a couple of shows in the Dawson Creek Mall.
