The Saskatchewan Science Centre is participating in the first INTERNATIONAL DAY OF LGBTQ+ PEOPLE IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATHS.
Visitors are invited to make Spectrometers, at 11am-1pm, and 6.00-7.00pm
Our spectrometer uses a diffraction grating to separate light into its various wavelengths. Diffraction grating is a material with very tiny lines at evenly spaced intervals. As light travels through it, an interference pattern is created separating out the light into its various wavelengths that show the colours of the rainbow.
Walking Rainbows – 1.30-2.30 and 7pm-8pm
Walking Rainbows use chromatography: primary colour inks soak up into paper towel placed between a circle of cups. Gradually the colours mix in the cups forming a rainbow that ‘walks’ around the circle.
Activities are included with admission.
Pride in STEM day is open to all. We invite visitors to share their photos of these activites using the hashtags #rainbowscience and #LGBTSTEMDay
