Want To Be Ignited?
It all starts with an idea. The Power of Ideas Tour is coming to Terry Fox Secondary on Feb 2nd as it travels across Canada as a part of Innovation150 to celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday. It is certain to ignite the innovator in all of us and Fox is lucky enough to be one of 80 stops across the country in 2017.
This exciting science exhibition is brought to us by The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics fully staffed and includes 3 main exhibits designed to inspire the innovator in everyone. There will be an interactive walkthrough exhibit in the main gym, an engaging presentation in the theatre and a makerspace by Actua with 3D printers and laser cutters.
Entrance is free and will feature our own side attractions like Science Rocks (live music by our Rock the Fox students), a Big Bang skit by our Drama students, a Mayor’s address, a STEM Science Fair contest, Robot Sumo Tables, a Student Art Gallery, a Public Costume Contest, Demo Domain, Career Corridor, Author’s Alley and Science Movie Marathons. Food trucks will be on hand selling Hawking Hot Dogs and Dark Matter Cola. The Exhibition is available to Terry Fox Students on Feb 2nd and 3rd during the day and we are opening up the school for a public event on Thursday Feb 2nd from 4pm-9pm.
You have an opportunity to help make this event extra spectacular. We have BIG ideas that would benefit from generous contributions. The teachers at Fox have come up with a wishlist of things that would make our event legendary. Some of the funds would go to decorations, signs and prizes. Another list includes things that would leave a long lasting legacy at Terry Fox like 3D printers, laser cutters, large display boards, tropical fishtanks and a keytar for our science songs being played live on stage. One vision includes Terry Fox Secondary hosting ongoing Starry Nights with our very own observatory on site with a GPS controlled telescope. How would you like to have the naming rights to that observatory?
