Fourth annual Science Rendezvous showcases Mount Sinai’s excellence in biomedical research
Interactive workshops, engaging displays, and Lunenfeld lab tours will offer the public a first-hand science experience
Go behind the scenes of leading science and technology research labs and institutes at Science Rendezvous, a FREE, multi-destination science festival taking place on Saturday, May 7 throughout Greater Toronto.
A premier destination, Mount Sinai Hospital and its Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute will offer several family-friendly interactive experiences, including interactive workshops (learn how to extract DNA from a banana!), engaging displays and presentations, as well as tours of new Lunenfeld labs.
“Science Rendezvous is an amazing opportunity to showcase all the great science happening in Ontario and specifically here at the Lunenfeld,” says Lorien Newell, Outreach Coordinator at the Lunenfeld. “It allows families to get a glimpse into the leading-edge research being conducted daily by Lunenfeld investigators, and gives the public a better understanding of complex scientific concepts.”
One of the largest grassroots events of its kind in Canada, Science Rendezvous launched its inaugural festival in May 2008 in the Toronto region. The partnering institutes and organizations continue to expand on their success in attracting thousands of curious science enthusiasts to discover the wonders of science in the world around them.
Where: Mount Sinai Hospital foyer (main floor of 600 University Avenue) and the 2nd floor cafeteria
When: Saturday, May 7, 11 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
