Science Literacy Week
The latest edition of Science Literacy Week came to include over 850 events put on by more than 300 partners in 200 cities across Canada. From public talks to explosive chemistry demos, stargazing sessions to nature hikes, there was sure to be an interesting activity for science lovers of all ages. Science Literacy Week is powered by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
In 2019, we’re partnering with ocean groups across Canada to bring together the largest ocean engagement and outreach event. Our nation has a special relationship with the sea, bordering three separate oceans—and so the Week will highlight ocean research, ocean health, challenges facing ocean communities and wildlife and solutions we can all implement at home. Whether you attend a talk, take part in a shoreline cleanup, get out on the water or just pick up a book, we’re hoping to make the oceans come to life for Canadians everywhere.
