Extreme Science at VIU

I was lucky to be one of the parent volunteers that got to go with the Gabriola Elementary grade 2/3 class to the Extreme Science show at VIU today.  It was loud, colourful and had all the kids (& adults) in the audience engaged.  It was a great way to promote the value of science to a young audience.  To start the scientists came out in lab coats armed with marshmallow guns, they later shot darts at a moving target, there was an explosion that sent ping pong balls around the auditorium, lightning, some rain clouds, and so much more.  I can't wait for the next field trip form to come around.
