With every passing year we know more about the vastness of our universe—and the role that humans play in it. Prepare to be astounded and amazed during this interactive event that asks kids to imagine the farthest reaches of space and time. International bestselling author and PhD in quantum device physics, Dr. Dominic Walliman, offers a guide to space rockets, stations and satellites as they become increasingly common. Claire Eamer, who has been fascinated by science for decades, shares a new type of research: glacial archaeology, which discovers long-extinct creatures in melting ice caps. It’s a big world out there. Help kids to discover it enthusiastically with this jaw-dropping, accessible, vivid event.

Claire Eamer grew up in Saskatchewan, lived in the Yukon for many years, and now lives on Gabriola Island, BC. She writes mainly about science and history for both kids and adults, although she recently published a picture book, Underneath the Sidewalk, that is definitely neither scientific nor historical. In 2014, she won the prestigious Lane Anderson Award for science writing in the young readers category. Her latest children’s book is Out of the Ice.
