Hi everyone,

We recently received a request for a school visit at Rockridge Secondary
School, for Thursday, March 9th. For this visit, we will be dropping
into three different Grade 10 science classes and talking about the
science that goes on at TRIUMF. Each session will last 80 minutes, and
we will be doing a few interactive science activities with the students
in the middle of our presentation.

We will need to get 2 - 3 volunteers to help out with the event, and
this will be a full day commitment, as the event takes place in North

We will be driving to the school from TRIUMF at around 8:15am, setting
up the presentation and demonstrations at 9:45am, and running three
80-minute workshops at 10:00am, 11:30am and 1:35pm respectively (with
scheduled lunch break at 12:50pm). We expect to finish the last session
at 3:00pm, and we will be driving back to TRIUMF straight from there.

What: School visit to Grade 10 classes to talk about the science going
on at TRIUMF

Where: Rockridge Secondary School (in North Vancouver)

When: Thursday, March 9th 2017, 8:15am - 4:00pm

Not only is this event is a great way to improve your science
communication skills and share what you are working on at TRIUMF, but
volunteers will be rewarded with a TRIUMF T-shirt!

If you are interested in helping out with this school visit, please to
reach out to me by emailing tours at .
