Family Day: Food Science Spectacular

You all asked for it, so here it is! We are very excited to be hosting our first every drop-in day at Action Potential Lab. This Family Day (Monday, February 16th) come by the Lab between 10 AM and 3 PM for a Food Science Spectacular! We will have stations set-up with amazing experiments and activities that will spark your imagination no matter your age—make your own “gushers” candy, turn on a light with a lemon, and more! Whether you’re a familiar face or new to the lab, we can’t wait to have the most awesome Family Day ever with you.

To make the day even more special, we will be partnering with our neighbourhood food bank, The Stop and accepting non-perishable donations.

Bonus: As a special treat to all Food Science Spectacular attendees, we will be offering a discount on that day only for our March Break Camp registrations.

Food Science activities include:

  • Make-Your-Own Gushers
  • Fruit and Veggie powered batteries
  • Glow-in-the-Dark Jell-O
  • + lots more!
