On Teen Tuesdays, Science World only accepts bookings from secondary schools and offers additional Grade 8–12 curriculum-connected programming. We know that teens don't like to be treated like children so we are thrilled to create a space where they can engage with science in the company of their peers!
October 16, November 20, December 18, 2018
January 15, February 19, March 12, April 9, May 14, and June 11, 2019
BodyWorks: Discover the ins and outs of the human body. With new exhibits and revised graphics and Lab Zone presented by Genome BC! Topics include:
- What do I look like?
- Where did I come from?
- What's inside me?
Tinkering with circuits: Tinkering is mindful messing-about with tools and materials, with the goal of finding out their possibilities and limitations. When we tinker, we make new things from existing parts, solve problems and learn by making mistakes. In this workshop, your students will experiment with some unconventional, low current, circuit-building materials to meet design challenges. Best for Grade 8–9, available daily at 10am and 12pm.
Eyeball Optics: Students will work in groups to explore some of the behaviours of light and dissect animal eyeballs to find the lens inside. Best for Grade 8, Teen Tuesday exclusive.
Global Soundscapes: Mission to Record the Earth: an interactive theatre show that takes students on an ear-opening journey into the science of sound and the exciting new field of soundscape ecology. Best for Environmental Science 11, Teen Tuesday exclusive.
