Observing some critters. Photo by Lisa Carter.Biologists, Robert Holmberg and Lisa Carter, took children to examine the critters that inhabit Muskeg Creek and the surrounding area. They looked at earthworms and insects with hand lenses and microscopes. There was also a nature scavenger hunt, as well as many other activities provided by the Science in a Crate exhibit courtesy of Science Alberta.



July 9, 2003 - Mad Chemist!

Experiments. Photo by Lisa Carter.Chemist Dr. Dietmer Kennephol and scientist Dr. Lisa Carter ran a fun filled day of discovering the mysteries of chemistry in the Landing Trail School science lab. Kids could participate in a multitude of fun chemistry experiments and got to finish off the day with a lesson in gold panning. Pennies were hidden in the creek as a substitute for gold, and everyone seemed to have a good time panning and getting dirty!
