KPU hosts sci-fest

Tornadoes, bugs, and beer are featured at the annual event.

  • May. 4, 2016 11:00 a.m.

Kwantlen Polytechnic’s Langley campus will turn into a public science lab for one day on May 7.

The fourth annual Science Rendezvous is now the largest public science festival in the Fraser Valley.

Visitors can make slime in the science labs, see flames dance to music, create tornadoes, creep through the bug lab, take a polygraph (lie detector) test and experience a chemistry magic show.

There will also be tours and tastings in the new beer brewing lab.

One of the new events added this year will also mark World Labyrinth Day. The Walk as One at 1 event will use a classic seven-turn labyrinth created by KPU urban ecosystems students and faculty.

More than 100 KPU faculty, staff, and student volunteers will be on hand to run the sizable event, representing six faculties and 21 departments.
