A one-day Science Festival at TELUS World of Science

11211 142 Street Northwest, Edmonton


Designed to promote the importance of science to society. Science Rendezvous is an event that engages people in different activities, by de-mystifying science – with the ultimate aim of getting young people interested in science and technology education in the future. Science Rendezvous was initiated Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in 2008 and continues to develop collaborative partnerships between educational, civic, science-based associations and outreach programs and business institutions to promote science awareness as well as science culture and literacy. This year Science Rendezvous activities will be integrated with events held across the country celebrating the International Year of Chemistry (IYC), establishing a national presence for the festival in the future.
