Moose JawTry a Career ExpoMoose Jaw Exhibition Grounds, Moose Jaw, SKMay 11, 2016, 10:00 am to 3:00 pmLet's Talk ScienceThis is a closed event. Let's Talk Science will be interacting with 600 Grade 10 students from Prairie South and Vanier Schools. We will be demonstrating to participants how science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is critical in so many careers using interactive 3D virtual reality.

ReginaBat Release EventSaskatchewan Science Centre, 2903 Powerhouse Drive, Regina, Saskatchewan, S4N 0A1May 12, 2016Saskatchewan Science CentreEach year, the SSC hosts the Bat Rescue Project over the winter. The Bat Rescue Project is a joint project with the University of Regina biology department. During the winter months, weather variations and changes to the ecosystem can cause bats to leave a state of hibernation and then entering business and residences. This places bats in dangerous situation in which they are thought of as pest. Bats that are in this situation cannot be released outside due to the temperature at these times of the year and they lack of food in their ecosystem. At times the bats are injured, malnourished and need added care. Through the Bat Rescue Project these bats receive care, are studied, and are eventually released back into the wild with tracking tags. The annual Bat Release has become a popular attracting with hundreds of people who come to learn more about our flying friends, the lives they lead, and what we can do to protect them. Things get under way with a presentation by world-renowned bat researcher from the University of Regina, Dr. Mark Brigham, and then moves outside for the release of the bats. Visitors can watch the bats as they fly into the evening sky. This is a free public event which provides visitors with information about bats, their habitats, and how to promote their safety, including bat boxes and more!

SaskatoonScience Odyssey: A Taste of Synchrotron ScienceCanadian Light Source Inc. 44 Innovation Blvd. Saskatoon, SK S7N 2V3May 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 2016Canadian Light Source IncThe Canadian Light Source, the country's largest research project and brightest light, is opening its doors to high school researchers to explore topics in nutrition and soil sciences. During Science Odyssey, 14 classes will participate in experiments at the facility in a condensed version of the Students on the Beamline high school research program. Taste of Synchrotron Science is an authentic research opportunity for students, who will work through a problem of their choice from hypothesis to experiment to conclusions. Participating classes will prepare their own samples for experiments at the CLS, where they will use state-of-art research equipment with CLS researchers.
