Youth evacuated from their homes due to recent flooding will be entertained by volunteers from the University of Manitoba’s WISE Kid-Netic Energy program beginning today.
For the next two days, youth from Peguis First Nation, Fairford First Nation, and St. Martin will dissect sea star fish, build coral reef dioramas and estimate sea life populations in their quest to learn microbiology.
WISE Kid-Netic Energy is an outreach program at the U of M, educating youth on science and engineering, while offering interactive, hands-on programming.
The first session will run today from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Marlborough Hotel, followed by at the Canad Inns Garden City on Thursday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
