We lived in interesting 2018 times. These are some of the highlights that made the headlines in this year of floods and droughts, fire and snow, and a never-ending stream of local and imported infotainment.
Topping the list was the enormously successful year had by The Exploration Place Museum and Science Centre.
In 2018, they became the headquarters for the Symbiosis initiative that brought (and continues to bring) together a plethora of stakeholders in the STEAM universe - the various fields of study in the professions of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
The Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) held its national convention in Prince George, centred at The Exploration Place. Staff of the museum, plus a number of other local people and places, were spotlighted for the science presentation industry of Canada. The conference theme was Lhulh'Uts'Ut'En (pronounced "Lull uts soo tan"), a Dakelh phrase meaning "Working Together."
Staff there held a usually-sold-out Adult Speaker Series, a monthly town hall meeting for science, starring some of the area's most interesting minds talking about their most prized personal projects.
