    Celebrate Dr. Bondar’s 25th anniversary of her flight in space and Canada’s 150th through the unique lens of her exquisite photographs.  

    The exhibition is called:  “Light in the Land ~ the Nature of Canada” and consists of 14 large fine art photographs that are examples of the Canadian landscape from sea to sea to sea. 

    To “kick off” the exhibition in each location (which can stay on display for several weeks at each science centre), Dr. Bondar will be present to interact with school children and youth during school hours or some other time that works for the children and youth of the host centre, as well as adults through, for example, a talk at an evening reception.

    Dr. Bondar will address topics reflecting the interests of the host organization’s community that could include Women in Science, SteAm ~ putting the Arts in STEM, Creativity and Innovation 101, and Discovering Nature through the Lens of a Camera.

    Looking back now, the student developers of a location-based game drawing crowds at the Ontario Science Centre would seem to be prescient geniuses.

    Their character-driven game features a cartoon creature that evolves as the player moves from one location to another, collecting information and cards that can only be obtained by physically walking to different parts of the museum.

    It's called BitMorph, and if you think it sounds a little like "Pokemon Go," the science centre's director of communication won't disagree. Read more

    A new family event is coming to Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre.

    After the centre’s annual Rib Cook-Off had to be cancelled due to the poor economic climate, staff worked to come up with a new event that could take its place this year.

    And that event will be called Discovery Day at Leduc #1.

    “They get to hear the roar of the motors and feel the rig shake,” Lawrence commented.

    “Most people have never stood on a rig nevermind one that’s running and there’s no place else in Canada, if not North America, that you would ever be able to experience this,” she added.

    “It’s going to be a blast.” Read more

    The Poke and Hope Gang from North Central Seniors went on an excursion Wednesday to try their hand at a competition-size billiards table stretching six feet by 12 feet long at The Exploration Place that dates back to 1910 when it arrived via the BX sternwheeler.

    With pockets a bit narrower, the balls a bit smaller and the men playing poker pool, they all had to reach a bit farther than on most pool playing days so it quickly became a matter of who adapted the fastest to see who would rule the table.

    "Man, that's a lot of table," said Howard Foot, president of the North Central Seniors Association, gazing at the sheer girth of the green surface on which the billiard balls rested before the break.

    The Exploration Place Museum and Science Centre acquired the table in 2003 by donation from the Kordyban family with the stipulation that it be played. Read more
