Science Rendezvous is the largest science festival in Canada that seeks to engage the public (and especially kids!) through interactive science activities, demonstrations, and laboratory experiences at various locations across Canada every year on the Saturday before Mother's Day. The 2016 event takes place on Saturday, May 7th in conjunction with International Astronomy Day.

Participants can explore dozens of hands-on science activities and demonstrations that will delight all ages at the North and East hallways of the Academic Quadrangle at SFU's Burnaby campus, Saturday, May 7th from 11 am - 3 pm.

*Stage Shows introduce the forces, and other physical concepts that must be balanced, to achieve flight as we travel through the history of putting humans in the sky. We'll float balloons, fly helicopters, launch rockets and more! Shows at 12 pm and 1 pm in SFU's Images Theatre.

*Science Rendezvous participants at SFU will have the chance to get first access to the results of the Canada Wide Experiment and learn more about the world beyond us through high-altitude balloons.
