Vancouver Science Social 2019

Vancouver Science Social Logo

At Science World, we believe that science is for everyone, not just scientists. The Vancouver Science Social takes a behind-the-scenes look at some of Vancouver's inspiring science hubs, where we'll meet scientists and innovators from across the province. This social media event connects unique social media audiences with the wonderful and nerdy world of science!

Science World’s 30th Anniversary has got us looking to the future and we believe that the future of our organization, city, and province is deeply rooted in our connection with nature. Thus, we will take a science field trip to Vancouver’s oldest research garden, an original thought-provoking urban nature exhibition, and we’ll wind up in our own feature exhibition which explores the wonder of mathematics in nature.

The Locations:

UBC Botanical Garden is a living museum with rare and scientifically valuable plants. As part of the UBC Faculty of Science, the Garden inspires learning and discovery of nature’s many wonderful secrets. The Greenheart TreeWalk is an aerial trail system that brings visitors and researchers into the upper canopy of the forest. UBC Botanical Garden’s vision is that plants are understood, valued, celebrated, and secure in a healthy, biodiverse world.

Museum of Vancouver (MOV) connects Vancouverites to each other and connects the city to the world. An enthusiastic civic advocate, MOV is dedicated to encouraging a deeper understanding of Vancouver through stories, objects and shared experiences. MOV is an independent, non-profit organization that seeks partners to support the evolution of the Museum’s visitor experience. Its vision is to inspire a socially connected, civically engaged city.

Science World British Columbia at TELUS World of Science is celebrating 30 years under the dome. This Science Museum is a place for in-person, hands-on experimentation and discovery and it is also an outreach organization, dedicated to a vision of building BC, and ultimately, Canada into a country of thriving, sustainable communities rooted in scientific literacy, innovation and a connection with nature.

As an organization, Science World aims to ignite wonder and empower dreams through science and nature.
