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:
- Use chromatography to separate a mixture into its different parts
- Build some bridges to find out which type of bridge is strongest
- Use Secchi discs to test water quality
- Get creative to imagine how different animals will use new parks and habitats
