BLCS executive director Gordon Stewart said the board is hoping to make a decision between the two locations at the meeting, which will take place at the centre’s current Happyvale elementary location in Brocklehurst.

Stewart, however, did not wish to disclose where the two possible new sites are located.

The Big Little Science Centre is being asked by School District 73 to move out of the Holt Street location it leases so the building can be used to house Four Directions alternative school students.

Four Directions was moved from George Hilliard elementary to accommodate Parkcrest elementary students displaced by a fire that destroyed their school on Sept. 5. Nobody was hurt in the fire, the cause of which remains under investigation, though police have ruled out arson.

Parkcrest students began classes in Hilliard on Monday.

The Big Little Science Centre offers visitors a variety of shows, demonstrations, teaching laboratories and more than 140 hands-on stations to experiment with science.
