Adult Science Night - MEAT and Greet

  • Saskatchewan Science Centre 2903 Powerhouse Drive Regina, Sask Canada (map)

The Science Centre - only for adults! Explore advanced programming and our exhibit floor with your adult friends and access to a cash bar!

Learn all about the food that you eat: try your hand at the Ag-grow-land Adventure Rodeo, learn more about meat from a local butcher, explore the journey food takes across the globe, and discover alternative sources of protein - including BUGS!

All attendees must bring photo ID and be 19 years old or older.

Food Miles

How far has your dinner travelled? Using our giant map, work out the real distances involved in getting your Sunday dinner from farm to fork. Visitors will be given a menu to feed a very demanding family and must map out a route to get specific ingredients back to Saskatchewan – no supermarkets or online ordering allowed! How many frequent flyer miles would you amass?

Richardson Ag-Grow-Land Adventure Rodeo

Test your skills as food producers as you race in the Ag-Grow-Land Adventure Rodeo! This race is about the food industry in Saskatchewan - from harvesting grain to raising livestock. Compete by yourself or in a team to win the Prize Rosette– who can complete the rodeo fastest?

The Meat Map with Prairie Meats – Space Stadium Stage

You’ve travelled the food miles and you’ve visited the farm. Now to make dinner! Meet a local butcher, Gene from Prairie Meats who will demonstrate meat cutting, and find out where different cuts of meat come from and how best to cook them.

Chirpy Smoothies and Cricket Chips

Are animals the only source of protein? Come taste-test protein in a new form – crickets! Learn how and why the crunchy critters are now being farmed for human consumption in Canada. Can you eat a bug?

Interested in other meat alternatives?

Join vegetarian cook and horticulturalist Dave Drummond and discover the crazy origins of fruits and veggies and why we cultivate rather than forage.
