Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had an amazing week. If you have read my first post you’ll know I love science, some could say more than I love reading. I find it so fascinating and love learning about anything even slightly scientific. This is why I love a little place in my home town that goes by the name Science North. Science North is the second largest science centre in all of Canada and just so happens to be one of my favorite places. If you’ve never been to Sudbury and asked me to show you around, this is one of the first places I would bring you. It has four floors of everything from a butterfly and insect room, an animal floor full of native Ontario animals and a discovery floor, with space, physics, human anatomy, a bed of nails and even a gyro-sphere.

Me and my friends spent almost 4 hours exploring and enjoying everything about the building. I spent most of my time on the animal floor and in the butterfly room. I also got to have fun on the gyro-sphere and even got myself to do a full 360 degree circle upside down. In the main lobby there is also a giant exhibit that is always changing. At the moment it is called Beyond Human Limits. It had information about sky diving, extreme skiing, rock climbing and so much more.

Some of the other exhibits I remember was one about arctic
animals, a display of human anatomy and one about ancient creatures. Other than all of the amazing learning opportunities, Science North just happens to be right next to the Ramsey Lake boardwalk. It is a beautiful path and walk way that goes over the water and through Bell Park.  For lunch, me and my friends went and sat on the dock to eat and we made some new friends. A group of ducks and geese came right up to us and even ate out of our hands. It was an amazing experience. I’ve been going to the centre with my family and with my school since I can remember and I still have so much fun every time I go. If you’re planning a trip to Northern Ontario, make sure you pass through Sudbury and take a day to explore all the amazing things Science North has to offer.
