OTTAWANatural Resources Canada will again be hosting its popular Science Odyssey Funfest, a one-day celebration of science and learning experience for youth.

Science Odyssey Funfest will feature family-focused and hands-on activities with scientists from the federal government, universities and private-sector organizations.
