Second Annual Grown-Up Science Fair

The Treehouse Group’s  Grown-Up Science Fair was such a success last year we’ve relocated to a bigger venue. This year we’ll be at the Rivoli on May 9, as part of the city-wide Science Rendezvous festivities. Doors at 8 pm. With generous support from innovative law firm Gilbert’s LLP, the philosophy is to explore science in a decidedly non-scientific way, with music, arts & crafts, drama and games. Other highlights:

– Meet Steve Mann, U of T’s resident cyborg

– Play periodic table twister;

– Can you pass an 8th grade science test?

– Compete for a meeting with a patent lawyer from Gilbert’s LLP to examine your invention ideas;

– Learn the “science of pool” with Rivoli’s resident pool expert Cape Breton Red and volunteers from Let’s Talk Science from 6 pm – 8 pm upstairs;

– Join us for the Grown-Up Science Fair after-party in the Rivoli back room with live DJs from 11:30 pm – close;

Get Involved! The Treehouse Group is looking for “scientists at heart” to contribute by making a project for the Grown-Up Science Fair. Have an idea? Want to help out? Email
