The Science Fair Foundation of BC’s Youth Innovation Showcase finals are this week, meaning you can tune in live to see youth ages 12-24 pitch their projects. The finalists this year include a biodegradable mechanical pencil dreamed up by 14-year-old Jahan Gill and 13-year old Patrick Cioata, an energy and cost-efficient refrigeration solution by 16-year-old Aislinn Dressler, and a device for sanitizing personal electronics by 21-year-old Ray Liu. Out of the 14 finalists, three winners get $5000: it’s like a local live reality show.

The Museum of Vancouver is opening to the public again this week. Visitors can check out the exhibitions—like Neon Vancouver, Ugly Vancouver, pictured above—after pre-purchasing a ticket for a specific timeslot. And of course, keep 2 metres apart. (What, do we have to spell it out in luminescent tubes?)

Like the MOV, the Burrard Arts Foundation is opening cautiously. Check out work from sculptor Caitlin Almond, photographer Jackie Dives and painter, illustrator and tattooist Katie So (who’s work is pictured above). So’s canvas works tackle the concept of self-care and the “trappings of millennial domesticity” —especially in pandemic-times, it’s worth the journey.
