CAN-BIND at Science Rendezvous
What is Science Rendezvous?
CAN-BIND participates in Science Rendezvous, a nationwide initiative developed to take “science out of the lab and onto the street”. With over 300 events across 30 Canadian cities, this free festival features a wide range of demonstrations and hands-on activities to increase public engagement with science.
