Everyone loves Dynamic Earth and the Big Nickel. Most families have treasured memories that make this Northern Ontario icon even more beloved.

With so many great stories, the science centre is asking families to help celebrate all that’s new at Dynamic Earth by sharing their fondest memories in the new Dynamic Family Contest.

Think your family's dynamite? Enter the Dynamic Family Contest by May 23, 2016 for a chance to win a prize package valued at over $700. 

“One of my favourite things to do at work is to watch families have fun while learning at our science centre,” said Julie Moskalyk, senior manager, Dynamic Earth, in a press release.

“With everything that's new at Dynamic Earth, like the new exhibits in our galleries, the outdoor Science Park opening this June and the renewed underground tour, I can't wait to watch families make even more fantastic memories that are sure to last a lifetime!”

Entrants of the Dynamic Family Contest will submit any family photo, along with a short description of their fondest memory at Dynamic Earth or the Big Nickel. 

The winning family will be invited to rediscover Dynamic Earth — which is bigger and blastier than ever before — during an after hours sleepover party for 12 people at Canada’s eighth largest science centre, a press release said.

The sleepover party includes a barbeque dinner, private play time in Sudbury’s first-and-only outdoor science park, a private Star Party, a movie in the Atlas Copco Theatre, popcorn, a treat bag and a boxed breakfast.

The winning family will also participate in a promotional photo shoot at Dynamic Earth.
