Kitchener – Your little makers will have fun while they enjoy an evening of learning and discovery on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. Discovery Square is all about hands-on activities, with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), and it returns to Carl Zehr Square from 5 to 8 p.m.

“Kitchener is such an exciting place and is very involved in the innovation and technology world,” says Jeff Young, manager of Special Events at The City of Kitchener. “This is an opportunity for our kids to get excited, to get hands on and to hopefully even get involved with that world. The big breakthrough of the future could begin at this year’s Discovery Square!”

Some exhibitors include THEMUSEUM, Kitchener Public Library, University of Waterloo Science Outreach and Kitchener Fire. There will also be live entertainment beginning at 6 p.m featuring Little Ray’s Reptiles and children’s entertainer, Erick Traplin, at 7 p.m.

Discovery Square is a rain or shine event at City Hall. If weather permits, it will take place in Carl Zehr Square, if rain is in the forecast, vendors and activities will be moved inside to The Rotunda. Discovery Square was created with kids aged five to 12 in mind, but children of all ages are welcome.
