Science World exhibit receives criticism from some parents

Mother considers 'shocking and provocative display' on human sexuality not family-friendly
This is one of three bus stop advertisements created for Science World's exhibit on human sexuality. The other two were deemed too racy and banned from transit waiting areas. "We're pushing inappropriate material directed at children at a younger and younger age," complained parent and show host Brian Lilley. Paul Schratz / Special to The B.C. Catholic.
Few questions provoke more awkward laughter and a need to change the subject than a child's innocent inquiry where babies come from. In an attempt to aid that conversation, Science World hosted an exhibit May 18 to Sept. 2 showcasing the "Science of Sexuality," but not all parents were happy about the tell-all exhibition.
