Family Friendly Programs
Super Volcanoes Week: Dec 26-Jan 2
Volcano Models - Dec 26, Dec 30
This activity is great for kids of all ages. Working together family members will make simple volcanoes out of everyday materials. Not only will baking soda be added so that your child’s creation becomes an erupting volcano, your little one also gets to take their volcano home. The HR MacMillan Space Centre interpretive staff will take visitors through the steps of how volcanoes work, and show you how to experiment at home!
Volcano Paintings - Dec 27, Dec 31
For the more artistic minded the Space Centre will have a paint station set up so you can make your own visions come to life. The Space Centre staff will be there show examples of how volcanoes can look very different from one another, and will inspire young artists to come up with their artistic vision for their very own volcano!
Scavenger Hunts - Daily
The HR MacMillan Cosmic Courtyard gallery space will be turned into a volcano scavenger hunt! There are a variety of different volcanoes around the world, and also in our solar system. A booklet of clues will help you decipher where the volcanoes are located on Earth or on another world. Prizes will be given out to successful hunters!
Fantastic Volcano Demonstrations - Dec 28, Jan 1
The in-house HR MacMillan Space Centre volcano experts are going to take things up a notch with some explosive demonstrations! They’ll build some large scale volcanoes that will simulate different eruptions including lava flows, exploding mountain tops, as well as rarely seen erupting oceanic volcanoes. Things might get messy!
Groovy Lava Lamps - Dec 29, Jan 2
Moms & dads, do you remember lava lamps? The Space Centre is going to introduce your kids to this retro activity and help them build their own lava lamp that will simulate how volcano flow works. All the supplies will be provided.
