In the Community

MiaSci is dedicated to serving all members of our community. One of the ways we do this is by going out into the community to deliver programming, from schools and parks to shopping malls and street festivals, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a memorable science moment. Whether it’s meeting one of the animals from our Wildlife Clinic, sampling some solar cooking or catching a science demo, the chance to take part in some live science learning may be right around your corner. Check out our Calendar of Events to see when we might be in your area.
