"At Union Gas, we believe that investing in education has many rewards," said John Davidson, utility services & construction manager, Union Gas. "We're very pleased to support Science Timmins and their commitment to investing in the future of our youth.

Science Village is Science Timmins' most ambitious initiative to date. Housed in a heritage building in downtown Timmins, Science Village is a place where visitors and program participants can PLAY, DISCOVER, LEARN AND LOVE SCIENCE. The Village is designed to let people of all ages experience the exhilaration of science, and offers informal learning delivered through hands-on activities.

"This generous donation from Union Gas helps to pay the cost of building material and the purchase of equipment such as glass and special lighting for a collection of taxidermied animals found in the boreal forest," said Lorraine Cantin, chair, Science Timmins.
