Rocky's Science Challenge: At-Home Science Experiments

Rocky the Rock Ripping Bucket is challenging you to some DIY science experiments!

Port Lands Flood Protection relies on many different science and engineering disciplines. To design and build a new river, ecological habitats, parks, roads, bridges – and a new island – the team draws on everything from geotechnical engineering to environmental testing.

In early 2020, we hosted a science and engineering fair to help people learn more about the science, technology and engineering behind this billion-dollar revitalization.

Now, you can try some of these experiments at home. Check out these instructions for experiments using materials found around the home:

Share the results of your at-home science experiments on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using #RockyScienceChallenge.
