It's a Science Takeover

September 21 & 22, 2019

Find out answers to all your science questions.

Come join the University of Calgary and invited guests for a free day filled with innovation and real science right from our researchers' laboratories. 

You'll find science happening all throughout Central Library — adults, kids, and families can stop by to check out the pop-up planetarium, take part in hands-on activities, watch live demonstrations, or sign up for a special program. Additional activities are happening at Fish Creek, Signal Hill, and Nose Hill libraries.
