Women and Girls of Science: Science Crush Edition

Sunday, April 3rd from 10am to 5pm

Free admission for girls 17 and under

To once again mark the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (held on February 11), a special activity will be added for those visiting our exhibitions on April 3.

Our four permanent exhibitions will each feature one of our four science and technology ambassadors:

Farah Alibay
Aerospace Engineer

Caroline Quach-Thanh
Pediatrician, microbiologist-infectiologist, epidemiologist and researcher

Alex Zandra Van Chestein
Video game designer, instavidist, artist, columnist, speaker and author

Marianne Falardeau-Côté
Ecology researcher and science communicator

Each exhibition has been matched with one of these ambassadors, and exhibition hall entrances will offer visitors a chance to learn about their career paths. Young girls (and boys!) are invited to make an origami heart and use it to tell us which ambassador inspires them the most. They simply need to drop their heart into the box with their favourite ambassador’s name after their visit.
