Adult Events

February 28th is Volunteer Night

Come find out what NS3 is all about! We will be hosting a volunteer info night for prospective volunteers from 5:30 – 7 in at our Science Studio. We will give a quick presentation to fill you in on the different programs we offer, then chat and mingle to answer any other questions you may have. No need to stay for the whole time period, if you need to arrive late we can fill you in on anything you may have missed!

We are currently looking for volunteers for our Citizen Science program, click here to learn more and check out citizen science under the science on the move tab!

Start the holiday season off right as you learn what it takes to craft delicious artisan gins, vodkas and absinthe from local ingredients! Tour the distillery with Arbutus Distillery’s head distiller Mike Pizzitelli. Mike has a background in biochemistry and cell biology as well as brewing distillation so has some great science to share! We will taste Arbutus Distillery’s signature gin and vodka while nibbling some delicious snacks.
