From September 17 – 21, the libraries are celebrating Science Literacy Week across the University of Alberta campus. The University of Alberta Libraries has partnered with Science Literacy Week, Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science and Technology (WISEST), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to bring a week full of science and space to the UAlberta community.
There will be interactive events and presentations throughout the week across campus and at five libraries; Bibliotheque Saint Jean, Cameron, HT Coutts, JW Scott and Rutherford. From molecular gastronomy to the science of constructing spacesuits we’ll have it all.
Be sure to check this years website calendar as the events differ from day to day.
