Science Rendezvous: A celebration of science and engineering

Posted: May 17th, 2017

On May 13, Durham College (DC), along with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, showed Durham Region families just how fun science can be during Science Rendezvous 2017, Canada’s largest celebration of science and engineering.

An annual festival that takes science out of the lab and onto the street, Science Rendezvous works with Canada’s top research institutes to present a free coast-to-coast open house and festival.

Held at the college’s Oshawa campus, DC co-hosted the Durham Region event that featured a day of family fun with over 60 activities, known as INVENTours, for science lovers of all ages to explore. Among the numerous stations, guests were able to make their own lava lamps and lip balm, try cool science magic tricks, build their own ecosystems and much more.

Nearly 100 volunteers, including faculty from DC’s schools of Health & Community Services and Science & Engineering Technology, as well as local high school students, helped make the day a success.

The excitement wrapped up with a grand finale celebration that included cake, music and prizes to mark Science Rendezvous’ 10th anniversary, DC’s 50th anniversary and Canada’s 150th birthday – all being celebrated in 2017.
