The hallways and classrooms of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Langley campus were packed with science buffs Saturday.
On May 13, KPU hosted the fifth annual Science Rendezvous at KPU Langley and on a rainy day, the event attracted hundreds of visitors, many of whom were families with young children.
During the day, KPU transformed into a family-friendly science festival that featured hands-on experiments, magic shows, interactive science labs, activities, arts and design, music, tours of the campus’s high-tech patient simulator nursing labs, and its state-of-the-art craft brewing lab.
