Antoine Garwah is the founder of Science Timmins, and he and his wife Lorraine have brought forth exciting learning opportunities for students in Timmins and the surrounding areas for many years. They bring science to life and provide hands-on activities for students to “play, discover and learn.” Stay tuned for more news about their most ambitious endeavor to date: the interactive Science Village, scheduled to open its doors in the Fall of 2015! The first big exhibit to hit the Village? Dinosaurs! The dinos will be in Timmins from September ’15 – January ’16.
