Science Rendezvous to take on light subjects

With a theme celebrating the International Year of Light, Science Rendezvous 2015 will offer activities, demonstrations, and exhibits on the UWindsor campus Saturday, May 9.

Organizing committee co-chair Nicole Dziamarski says this year’s event is broadening its appeal to encompass high school students as well as younger children.

“We are really making an effort to engage older kids,” she says. “We want them to know that they’re welcome, whether they’re into science or not.”

Interactive displays will allow visitors to extract their own genetic code, witness the power of the sun, and even watch robots throwing balls and Frisbees. All activities are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the CAW Student Centre and Essex Hall.

More information, including a volunteer sign-up form, is available on the Science Rendezvous Windsor website.
