We love our members, and to show our appreciation we're hosting a members-only preview of Dynamic Earth's Halloween and Pumpkinferno events, before they open to the public. Trepidations and chills await you in maximum exuberance for this one-night event. This family-friendly evening takes place on October 5 from 7pm to 9pm at Dynamic Earth. * FREE FOR MEMBERS!
October 6 to 29
Been a bag of bones all summer? Get ready to have them chilled this Halloween at Dynamic Earth and Pumpkinferno! Pumpkinferno is back and we have three new sets to thrill and chill you! Join us at Dynamic Earth for the month of October for frightfully exciting activities, treats, and definitely a few tricks.
Science North is for everyone! If our regular operations are a little too much for your senses to handle, join us for a Sensory Friendly Sunday, for a quieter, sensory friendly experience. During this event, sounds will be turned down or off, lighting will be adjusted, the science centre will be less busy, and certain spaces will be set up as sensory break spaces. At noon, catch a special sensory-friendly IMAX with house lights on, reduced volume, and no trailers or preshow!
SIGHTS! CAMERA! RELAXIN’! Join us for our first ever CINEMA SOCIAL, a 50+ event which provides exclusive and unfettered early morning access to Science North! Before our doors open to the public, arrive at the science centre to meet up with friends, both old and new, for a casual and conversational jaunt throughout our facility. After that, cool your jets down with coffee, tea, and refreshments prior to sauntering into the IMAX theatre for our featured film and specially-curated guest speaker! Interested in the social component without the added strain? No problem, consider the walk optional! The key takeaway is that we’ve created a safe space for you and your peers to exercise in, socialize, and enjoy meaningful programming that resonates with YOU!
From spiders to skulls, and everything in between, we’ve got an event just for teens* this Halloween! Join us under the Big Nickel for all the best Dynamic Earth Halloween activities like Pumpkinferno, Bug Bistro (with tons of cool new flavours!), ghost hunting, a live science show, and more! PLUS an epic costume contest with prizes to be won! Don’t ghost us, gather your friends and grab your tickets!
* For the purpose of this event, teens are those in grades 9–12 as of September 2023
Where the Falcon Flies: A 3,400 Kilometre Odyssey from My Doorstep to the Arctic
2022, Adam Shoalts embarked on 3,400 km journey by canoe from Lake Erie to the Arctic. The adventure is the subject of his new book, Where the Falcon Flies: A 3,400 Kilometre Odyssey From My Doorstep to the Arctic. Shoalts will share the story of his journey with us, including photos and maps.
Indigenous peoples from North America have long demonstrated a great sense of ingenuity, using nature as inspiration. The world we know today was, in part, fashioned by their innovations and approaches to science. Designed around an interactive quest, the exhibition invites visitors to experience the innovative processes that give rise to Indigenous knowledge by observing, listening, experimenting, and sharing.
