The sun is shining, the sky is blue, it looks like the week is going to start in a good way!
Here are 5 things happening in and around Victoria today!
What: This year Victoria will host its first ever Pint of Science Festival! It will happen simultaneously in three venues. Come learn about the Big Bang, atoms, planets and black holes at the The Moon Under Water Brewery, Pub, Distillery & Tasting Room, about autism, human potential, and healthy aging at the Gorge Pointe Pub, and about BC’s whales, bees and seismic hazards at the Six Mile Pub.
You don’t need any prior knowledge, and this is your chance to meet the people responsible for the future of science (and have a pint with them).
