Science Literacy Week
Science Literacy Week is a national week-long celebration of science in Canada. From September 18 - 22, 2017, U of A Libraries, WISEST, and the Faculty of Science will be presenting a number of presentations, demos, and displays showcasing the diverse scientific research conducted by staff and students all across the University of Alberta and Edmonton Area. Science Literacy Week gives students and staff the opportunity to get up close and personal with scientific research and learn what goes on behind lab room doors from those who are passionately curious about their research and work. We are organizing a number of exciting events, including live animal visits, planting workshops, and microbrewery tours! This year we will be extending invitations to high schools around the Edmonton Area to attend special presentations on Friday, Sep 22nd.
