Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it firsthand by accidentally ingesting a science textbook. Embrace science with today's Groupon. Choose from the following options to the Saskatchewan Science Centre:
- For $20, you get two admissions to the "Our Body" Special Exhibit and the Saskatchewan Science Centre (a $40 value).
- For $14, you get two adult and two youth/children (ages 3-13) admissions to the Saskatchewan Science Centre (an up to $28 value).
More than 150 hands-on educational exhibits, games, and activities populate the permanent exhibits of the Saskatchewan Science Centre. Visitors can explore WILD! Saskatchewan, which provides a chance to learn about the region's patrimony of natural wonders, like bears, accountants, and gargoyle accountants. Kids can stand inside a giant soap bubble, watch how cotton candy is made, and discover the physics and psychology behind hockey with the museum's Mindball game. Drop-in access to the museum's 18-metre climbing wall comes with the price of admission.
Entrants to the visiting "Our Body: The Universe Within" exhibit are treated to an inside view of the human body that's normally available only to philosophizing X-ray machines. Here until January 9, the exhibit consists of six galleries of actual human anatomical specimens that have been preserved by polymer impregnation, a relatively new process wherein reactive plastics replace bodily fluids to create models that are both more durable and less jittery than actual people, whose veins are filled with Mountain Dew: Code Red. While allowing a backstage pass into the workings of arteries and organs, the exhibit approaches its subject with deference and respect, tastefully laying bare the mysteries of the human body.
