University of Guelph-Humber Hosts Free All-Day Science Festival

Community invited to take part in 10th Annual Science Rendezvous

TORONTO, ON – On Saturday, May 13, University of Guelph-Humber will host a free, interactive, all ages science festival as part of the 10th annual Science Rendezvous, taking place across 30 Canadian cities that same day.

Science Rendezvous is an annual event that gets science out of the lab and into the local communities thanks to partners like University of Guelph-Humber. Festival-goers get a chance to meet with world-class researchers, tour cutting-edge labs, participate in hands-on-experiments and see amazing scientific demonstrations.

At University of Guelph-Humber, student volunteers will lead activities based in anatomy, neuroscience, health and fitness, memory, and forensic science. Attendees will have the chance to: look at muscles, fat, the brain, heart and the lungs; assess fitness levels through interactive exercises; learn more about facial recognition, and even explore a crime scene.

“This festival is a really great way for our students to not only showcase the science that happens here through their programs, but also to allow them to share, show and teach others what they’ve learned,” said Kinesiology Acting Program Head Dr. Agnes Coutinho.

More than 300 Science Rendezvous festival events are taking place simultaneously in 30 cities across Canada on May 13.
