“The experience is unique because our programs are unique. We have world class facilities and programs like the Aquatron and the Ocean Tracking Network; nothing in this country can compare,” John Batt, Aquatron manager.
“The Fun and Discovery Days is an opportunity for students and teachers to visit the Faculty of Science, participate in interactive, educational and hands-on activities that assist teachers in meeting their curriculum outcomes,” Theresa Myra, school outreach coordinator for the Faculty of Science at Dalhousie.
"Dalhousie's Fun Days is an excellent opportunity to immerse children in the world of science by showing them fun and innovative ways in which science is cool! It was great that the students could enjoy science in ways that we cannot produce at a junior high level.” Joy Noseworthy, junior high teacher at Uniacke District School who brought her classes to Physics Fun Days held earlier in May.
