Science Literacy Week @ McGill: We love science!

Events happening across campus, September 18 - 24, 2017

Learn More about Science

We love science and we want to share some of our favourite resources:

McGill University

  • The Turret: From Schulich Library of Science and Engineering, where they blog about about science, technology, and medicine and how they intersect with scholarly and popular communication.
  • Redpath Museum: The museum is on the downtown McGill University campus and is free for the general public. Exhibits focus on natural history, world cultures (ethnology), and mineralogy. Popular specimens include dinosaurs, shells, mummies and a wide variety of Quebec minerals. They also have recommended links to explore.
  • Let's Talk Science Outreach at McGill University: Reaching out to kids as young as three up to youth in Grade 12, these dedicated volunteers have pulled together some neat activities organized by subject and age group.
  • Office for Science and Society: The Office answers queries from the public, as well as from the media, on scientific matters with a view towards separating facts from myths. There is a lot to explore on this website. Check out their Separating Sense from Nonsense blog.
  • Public Astro Nights: Free public talks and night-sky observations, the third Thursday of each month, in the Rutherford Physics Building.
