(WINDSOR, ON) – On Saturday, Windsor marchers will join over 500 communities across the world in an event to promote scientific literacy and science as a way of thinking.
Beginning at 10:00am, the participants will assemble just east of Assumption Park’s parking lot, at the foot of Askin, to hear presentations by Dr William Baylis, the president of the Canada South Science Centre, Dr Tanya Noel, the learning specialist at the University of Windsor’s Department of Biological Sciences, and the Department’s Head, Dr Dennis Higgs.
Next, those gathered will march to Dieppe Park and then back to Assumption Park where, at 11:30 am, science-based activities will start, including educational opportunities for all ages.
Some of the activities will include a laser maze, basic engineering events, computer programming workshops run by Massey high school students, forensic science displays, and science arts and crafts.
Food will be offered for sale, supplied by Eddy’s Mediterranean Bistro and Brewin’ Bros serving detox teas.
Merchandise for sale at the event will include T-shirts and science jewellery along with Sweet Revenge special-edition Earth Day macaroons. Proceeds will support the expected re-launch of Windsor’s Canada South Science Centre.
