SYNOPSIS: Here’s a riddle for you - What do Squishy Buffalo, Jello Brains And GPS have in common? Well, science, of course. And the Science Alberta Foundation. The group’s latest Science Festival attracted over 6000 people to many events in the Fort-McMurray – Wood Buffalo region of Alberta. Fun and frolic helped put a new spin on science, from the experiments kids do in school to the technology their parents deal with everyday on the job.
