Volunteers from Let's Talk Science will be highlighting:
Join Let's Talk Science volunteers outside the library during Science Literacy Week for quick hands-on science activities to kick-start/brighten/end your day just right! Build functional play-doh circuits, discover the pH of bleach using just a vegetable juice, and more! Good science-y fun, and you might just learn something. And remember: the theme of Science Literacy Week this year is 'Science Communication', so if you're up for it, we'll challenge you to explain the activities you just experienced as clearly and concisely as you can for cool prizes! Hope to see you there.
Students from the J. Tuzo Wilson Club will be highlighting:
Variety of rocks and fossil samples from locations such as Mazon Creek, Bronte, and the Credit river. Some of the fossils seen include soft-bodied specimens such as Trilobites, shrimps, worms, and the rare Tullimonstrum from the Mazon Creek area. Additionally, several types of interesting minerals such as pyrite are on display for students to come and examine. Members of the J. Tuzo Wilson Geology Club will be present to talk to and answer any questions about the samples or general questions about the Earth Science program.
