National Science and Technology Week kicks off

Science enthusiasts' most wonderful time of year has officially arrived. Between October 14 and 23, Canada celebrates National Science and Technology Week, which recognizes the importance of the branch of knowledge to the country and the world at-large.

During the week-long celebration, a variety of activities are planned involving hundreds of organizations, government officials, industry leaders and educators throughout Canada.

"The Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation is proud to be the national coordinator of the 2011 National Science and Technology Week," said Denise Amyot, president and CEO of the Canada Science and Technology Corporation. "As keepers of Canada's scientific and technological collection, we encourage all Canadians to engage with their scientific and technological past, present and future."

Special events are planned among virtually all of Canada's 10 provinces each day, Ontario included, at facilities including the Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa and at Natural Resources Canada's Science Funfest.

Experimentation and testing utensils that scientific analysis often involves isn't exactly inexpensive. That's why many enthusiasts store their beakers and kits in storage units for safe keeping.
