Events Description

The Harvest Hills Hub is thrilled to partner with Mad Science of South Alberta to bring FREE science workshops to the HHHub this summer!

These 1 hour workshops will run every Thursday from 6-7pm (weather permitting) from July 2 – August 20, 2020. They will cover a variety of nature themed subjects, and are broken into two age groups to ensure the most fun for all involved!

In order to comply with provincial regulations surrounding Covid-19, workshop space is extremely limited, so we ask that you only register for 1 workshop. If there are any remaining spots 24 hours before a workshop is held, we will open up registration to anyone, so make sure you follow us on Facebook!
