The University of Victoria (UVic) EcoCAR Team recently had the opportunity to participate in Family Night Science at Victoria’s Lansdowne Middle School. Parents and children were invited for a three-hour event where several booths promoted different aspects of science. UVic’s outreach volunteers had found the Family Night Science announcement during an event search and the organizers excitedly accepted the EcoCAR team’s offer to attend.
UVic was given the opportunity make an introductory speech to all the parents and students before the event began, after which the team manned the booth to discuss EcoCAR with the attendees. The children and parents were interested to hear more about the competition, and the UVic team did a fantastic job explaining EcoCAR and answering questions.
