SAINTE-JULIE, QC, Dec. 15, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - During the holidays, Hydro-Québec's electricity interpretation is offering an energizing—and free—program for the whole family. Introductory science workshops run by Profaqua, a firm that specializes in popularizing science, will captivate curious children, ages 6 and up. A shortened version of the centre's guided tour will also be available.
Fun workshops for the whole family
From December 27 to December 30, and on January 3 and 4, 2015, electricity will share the spotlight at the Électrium. Budding scientists will get to participate in workshops on a variety of scientific subjects: how to build bridges, parachute an egg without breaking it, explore the moon or cook up chemical potions. So many ideas to arouse their curiosity!
Guides will lead children and their parents through a new theme every day [workshops in French only].
Learn about our history
To highlight Hydro-Québec's 70th anniversary, we have set up a display of artefacts and archival photos from the company's historical collection on the theme of the first phase of the nationalization of electricity.

The Électrium offers guided tours adapted to different visitor groups and several interactive modules so you can learn more about the electric phenomena that surround you.
