“We’re always looking for a playful way to introduce children to science,” said Jim Swingle, Executive Director of the Okanagan Science Centre. “And what’s a more playful way to approach the concept of pi than with real pie?”

The Okanagan Science Centre is a charitable non-profit organization. It has been inspiring kids and families with hands-on scientific exhibits, programs, and camps for over 25 years. Our goal is to make science fun and accessible for everyone. To learn more visit www.okscience.ca or call us at 250-545-3644.
