Vernon organization gears up for International Science Centre Day

Okanagan Science Centre’s day of celebration is Nov. 10

Vernon’s own Okanagan Science Centre is getting into the celebrating mood as it gears up for International Science Centre and Science Museum Day Nov. 10.

“Central to our mission is ensuring science is for everyone,” said Jim Swingle, executive director. “It is important to us to offer free days at the Science Centre so that everyone in the community can enjoy and benefit from what we offer here. We hope lots of families will come down and see what we’re doing.”

The event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will feature demonstrations and hands-on activities for children and families throughout the day. Kal Tire will have a by-donation barbecue set up in the parking lot from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the proceeds going to providing Okanagan Science Centre Family Memberships to Vernon families in need.

The day, Swingle said, will also give the community a chance to see the new gallery floor made possible by Kal Tire’s donation through its recycled tire program.
