University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus — Engineering Building and the Science Complex Buildings

The University of Manitoba bursts open for Science Rendezvous, a science and engineering carnival with an art twist showcasing the fun, intrigue, and spectacle in science. Join us on campus on Saturday, May 13, 2017 for a free day of fun and discovery. This year’s activities will delight children and adults alike, from a robotic painting snake to chemists offering potion classes.

Faculties from across the University campus are joining with the Faculty of Science, including: Engineering, Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources, Agricultural and Food Sciences, Arts, Fine Arts, and Kinesiology and Recreation Management, and are eager to share their passion for discovering the unknown and their ways of looking at the world.

Event Details

A sensory, sciencey experience in beer. As part of Science Odyssey Week, scientists and beer enthusiasts meet at the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre for this adults-only night of experiments and merriment. Tour the malthouse and brewing house, then head to the lab to plunge into different worlds of science and history. You’ll meet a microbiologist, a physicist, a Medieval Historian, and a chemist, who will take turns guiding you through beer and brewing as it connects to each of their areas of expertise – whether it’s focused on the organisms that carry out the miraculous transformation of starch into alcohol, or the bubbles that tickle your tongue and tastebuds, or the historical significance of beer, or how corn, an under-utilized crop, can be used to brew gluten-free beer.

Includes two flights of beer paired with appetizers. Pairings will be provided by Chef Karen Peters of Karen Foods.
