Science brought together local students and members of the Science World Road Team at schools throughout the Columbia Valley.

The group came to the area after leaving Vancouver and flying into Cranbrook to begin a series of fun science-based events for students.

“We stayed in Golden for two nights, and did five science shows at four different schools. We drove to Invermere where we visited three schools. This is in addition to one school in Edgewater, one school in Canal Flats, and finally a school in Windermere,” said one of the tour members Stephan Adamus.

Adamus and his partner Kyle Bottom bring science to the students through a number of fun interactive experiments including the very popular pop bottle rockets

“The different shows we do are called ‘It’s A Gas’, ‘Energy And Action’, ‘Sporty Science’, and ‘Under Pressure’.”

The pair had children enthralled in what they were doing while also learning about different aspects of the world around them.

They also took time to be a part of the Community Science Celebration which was held in Invermere.

Students could see a larger show and also talk to many different groups about different environmental aspects of the Columbia Valley.
