Biggest public science festival in the Fraser Valley

The largest public science festival in the Fraser Valley was expected to draw about 3,000 visitors to the Langley City campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) Saturday.

There was a lot of hands-on science for people to experience.

Among other things, visitors were able to create glitter slime, inflate a real lung, taste a craft brew, or watch the chemistry magic show at the KPU Science Rendezvous and Langley Open House.

Last year, the event drew 2,000 visitors to experience the free hands-on activities, shows, tours and displays for the entire family.
