The BIG Little Science Centre (BLSC) was started in February 2000 by Gordon R. Gore, a retired science teacher who has dedicated his life to teaching science in an interactive environment. The Centre currently operates out of four classrooms and  gym leased from School District 73 at Happyvale School. The current program format allows visitors a period of time to experiment on their own at any of 140 plus hands-on stations located in the gym. The four other rooms are used for demonstrations and as basic teaching laboratories.

Our Vision

The Big Little Science Centre will inspire our community’s children, their families and our teachers to explore and experience science in an entertaining and stimulating environment. It will nurture a life long appreciation for and interest in science within its audience. Increasingly, the Big Little Science Centre will be a loved and respected institution that is open and accessible to all members of our community.
