New Recycled Floor Acts as Teaching Tool at Okanagan Science Centre

The new floor, located in the science centre’s main gallery, is made of nearly 100 recycled tires and was funded and supplied by Kal Tire through its newly launched Kal’s RePlay Fund.


The competitive grant helps Canadian charities and non-profit organizations with the cost and supply of recycled rubber products such as playground surfaces, flooring, and roofing. A sustainable product, recycled rubber flooring is known for its long-term durability and is perfect for high-traffic areas.

Kids already love to bounce around and play while learning about nature, outer space and more at the Okanagan Science Centre (OSC), and now they have even more reason to do so with the installation of a new recycled rubber floor at the Vernon landmark.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation through knowledge sharing and respectful relationships.
