Pro-D Day with GearBots!

Do you teach grade 4-8? Join us for a STEAM-focused pro-d day with GearBots!

This workshop will be ideal for teachers who want to integrate Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum into their classroom practice, get familiar with the basics of coding a robotic device, and learn about Canada’s contributions to the Artemis Mission.

August 11, 7:00pm

Return of the Perseids Meteor Shower

The annual Perseid meteor shower returns this August, and will be peaking around August 13th. Ever wonder what a meteor shower is, where meteors come from, or how to see them? Join us for an interactive presentation in the planetarium that will answer those questions, and find out what you need to know to view the Perseid meteor shower.

The observatory will be open after the presentation, however the best place to view the meteor shower will be in dark park locations away from the city lights. You can also browse our Cosmic Courtyard gallery during your visit. *This program will be taking place during our regular Friday evening 7:00pm time slot.*
