It’s Science Literacy Week!

September 20, 2022

Science Literacy Week in Canada (September 19-25) is all about showcasing the many ways kids and families can explore and enjoy the diversity of Canadian science.

From libraries to museums, science centres, and schools – each are highlighting books, movies, podcasts, and events and sharing exciting stories of science.

This year’s theme is mathematics and we are sharing books and eBooks to inspire a passion for math and science at any age.

It’s also full STEAM ahead for Creativity Commons in Nanaimo during Science Literacy Week. Join the branch for an afternoon of exciting scientific exploration and discovery on September 24 from 2-4 pm. Local author Lindsay Ford will read her new book Science Girl. There will also be activities and experiments with Nanaimo Science and kids can take home a paperbag STEAM kit. Event is drop in!
