Saturday Serious Fun: It’s Showtime!
Saturday March 8 at 1:00pm
Reeling from the Oscar buzz? The Okanagan Science Centre goes Hollywood this Saturday at 1:00pm to prepare you for the spring and summer blockbuster season! Shed light on the science behind the silver screen by creating your own movie wheels to take home, and exploring ‘persistence of vision’ and the phi phenomenon – illusions that trick our eyes and keep us on the edge of our seats!
Suitable for all ages.
The Science in Society Speaker Series presents:
Dr. Jessica Grahn: Music and the Brain
Thursday March 13 at 7:30pm
Okanagan College Vernon Campus Lecture Theatre

Do you wonder why you tap your toes to a good beat? Dr. Grahn will discuss how newborn babies learn about rhythm through movement and how the brain automatically responds to rhythm.

The Speaker Series is a joint project between Okanagan College and the Okanagan Science Centre. Call 250-545-3644 or visit the science centre in Polson Park for tickets.
