SAINTE-JULIE, QC, Nov. 28, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - During the Holidays, Hydro-Québec's Electricity Interpretation Centre welcomes your family and lets young explorers discover the world of science through workshops led by science communicators from Profaqua. A shortened version of the centre's guided tour is also on the program. And you can admire our Christmas tree lit up with electricity made by our electric eel…all free of charge!
Fun workshops for the whole family!
From December 27 to December 30, and from January 3 to January 6, electricity won't take the entire spotlight at the Électrium! Budding scientists will get to participate in workshops developed just for them about subjects as varied as the mystery of air, dinosaurs, Newton's lessons, time and measurement, the chemistry of dry ice, electric circuits and much more! Each day will feature a new theme. Profaqua activity guides will lead children ages 6 and up through experiments and educational games.
For detailed programming, workshop schedules or to reserve your place, contact the Électrium team at 1 800 267-4558, or visit www.hydroquebec.com/visit. Spaces are limited.
At the Électrium, electricity is at the heart of life
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. For example, you can explore electricity's role on the human body and its effect on our reflexes—and even get to test who, in your family, has the fastest reflexes! Don't miss the electric eel and observe how its shocks affect the Christmas tree lights!
Throughout your visit, you'll get to discover the nature of electricity and how to generate it, and learn about electrical and magnetic fields. And, you'll have fun seeing how static electricity affects your hair with the Van de Graaff generator!
The Électrium is located in Sainte-Julie, Exit 87 off Highway 30, in the Montérégie region.
Plan your visit !
The Électrium will be open from December 27 to 30, 2013, and from January 3 to Janaury 6, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
