Summer Blast-Off

Summer often brings great family vacations, but make Canada Day weekend extra special with a ‘stay-cation’ at Discovery Centre’s Summer Blast-Off. All the exciting activities are waiting for you on June 29 – 30, 2024, with a weekend of scientific fun and adventures.

What’s coming up? Well, wild and wonderful science shows, of course! Plus, you can enjoy summer classics, like playing with chalk and blowing gigantic bubbles. On Saturday from 1 – 4 pm, meet Hal-Con cosplayers and snap some great photos. Then cool off in the Centre’s newest exhibit, HOCKEY: Faster Than Ever! This exhibit brings you the science of hockey, where you can compete for the fastest slapshot, tour a locker room, and more.

Fireworks, BBQs, family, and friends — whatever your Canada Day weekend holds, make it all about summer and science! Plan on visiting the Discovery Centre Summer Blast-Off, for an easy, engaging family day that everyone will enjoy. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.

Happy Canada Day weekend, Halifax!
