From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Fun, science, and community collide at Discovery Square

Kids learning at Discovery Square

School may be out, but for the curious minded, learning never stops. During the month of July, Waterloo’s Science Outreach team took part in Discovery Square, a STEAM event celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math hosted by the City of Kitchener at Civic Square in front of City Hall.

Exploring the world of science at Kidspark

This past weekend, community members big and small explored the world of science with the University of Waterloo at Kidspark hosted by the City of Kitchener. The annual event creates a fun and interactive playground atmosphere for children and youth to engage in a range of activations led by various regional partners. By actively participating in this community-driven initiative, Waterloo’s Science Outreach and Engineering Science Quest (ESQ) have a unique opportunity to connect with the local community, share their knowledge and expertise, and impact innovators of the future.

Science Outreach ignites curiosity at Discovery Square

From digging for fossil fish to creating an instant cloud in a bottle, children have been channeling their inner scientist as they explore a variety of hands-on science activities at Discovery Square.

Each Tuesday night in July, the University of Waterloo’s Science Outreach Team takes part in this children's event held at Kitchener City Hall’s Carl Zehr Square, celebrating STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). Engaging activities such as electrifying Van de Graaff demonstrations, snow rocks and gold panning help children learn about basic science concepts in a fun and interactive way.

Discover a world of fun

Kid friendly science, magic, and hands-on activities are just some of the free and exciting events at this year’s Discovery Square in downtown Kitchener.
