May 5: Vancouver: NRCan Discovery Centre Science Open House


Fingers crossed NRCat will be there!

Get involved by making your own earthquake, ‘dig deep’ in the augmented reality sand box and peer into petrographic microscopes. They don’t travel by horseback and canoe anymore, but their research continues to lead the world in scientific advancement.  2017 marks two birthdays in one year; Canada150 and Geological Survey of Canada 175th Anniversary.
