Discovery Drawer Showcase
Elementary school students – we want to showcase your projects!
We have a drawer in our Kids Exploratorium wing that is just waiting to be filled with a handcrafted project by local students. We would love to showcase your work (e.g. display board, model, project, diorama). It will then be displayed for up to a month!
Here are some ideas:
- Water, soil, seasonal life cycles
- Study of a living thing
- Adaptations of plants or animals
- Needs & features of specific living things
- Evolution, survival, and/or natural selection
- Food chains and webs in your local area
- The 5R’s (refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle) & more!
- Human impacts on the environment
- Local plants and animals
Important note: drawer dimensions are 49 cm wide, 15 cm high, 39 cm deep.
Please include your name and contact details with your display so we can return your work to you.
If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] or phone us at 604-990-3755.
