Espace - Activités éclipse

On April 8, 2024, a rare astronomical event will take place: a total solar eclipse. In anticipation, we’re offering a fun-filled scientific program to refresh your school memories and amaze the young and old alike.
Join us on April 6 at the Centre Lac-Brome for film screenings, workshops and lectures focusing on space and its secrets. Good news: the children’s workshops won’t require parents’ presence and will take place at the same time as the adult workshops, so everyone can get in on the fun! As a bonus, a very useful surprise will be waiting for you on site…
Please note that places are limited, and registration is mandatory.
Free for residents; $5/person for non-residents.
