Tricks and Treats with Grenfell Science

Lay Summary 

"Trick-or-treat" took on a whole new meaning last Hallowe’en at Grenfell Campus.

Grenfell’s Division of Science and Let’s Talk Science volunteers offered local children a fun evening of cool science activities followed by candy treats.

While on campus, children aged 6-12 and their parents/guardians were invited to “trick-or-treat” among science stations. At each station, they participate in a short, hands-on science activity and receive candy. Some of the station activities include slime-making chemistry, digging for fossils, building a skeleton, examining illusions, and learning to do mathematical "magic" tricks.

Station hosts were encouraged to come up with activities that demonstrate a surprising or tricky aspect of science. This event is about making science fun, interesting and accessible to children. It’s also an opportunity to showcase the wide range of scientific disciplines and research happening at Grenfell Campus.


The free drop-in event took place Wednesday, Oct. 29 from 6-9 p.m. in the Arts and Science Extension Atrium at Grenfell Campus.
