Mix, mingle and have fun like a kid—without the kids

Join us after hours for exclusive adult-only programming. If you've ever wanted to explore our science centre with your friends and without the youngsters around, here's your chance. Our Science World After Dark adult evenings take place every 2 months, but we also host other adult events from time to time.

Café Scientifique: Immunization Awareness


Join us for discussion and dessert, as we explore common questions around immunization such as, "Why immunize?” “Aren't all those diseases gone?” “Are vaccines harmful?" We’ll hear from professionals who work in the areas of control and prevention of infectious disease, vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccine effectiveness and vaccine safety.

This is event will be rescheduled...stay tuned!
