Film screenings, contests and door prizes have been added to the centre's regular guided tours from December 27 to 30, 2007, and from January 3 to 6, 2008. And of course, all these activities are free!
The Electrium invites young people and their families to take part in an entertaining learning experience as they discover electricity's many aspects: its role in the human body, the origin of lightning, the secrets of electric eels, and how the earth's magnetic field works.
Film screenings are also on the program, including the animated film, Follow the Line, which shows how electricity gets from the power station to your home, and Science, Please!, funny short films on science-related topics produced by the National Film Board.
All visitors could be eligible to win a door prize by participating in a quiz related to the film, Follow the Line. Young people, 5 to 14 years, can also participate in an art contest where the most creative drawings will be rewarded.
