The Scientific Culture Week is back and we’re showcasing the many ways children and families can explore and benefit from the diversity of Canadian science. The theme for this year is the climate. Join us the week of September 20 and listen to environmental champions to find out how climate change has impacted our lives and how you can turn your climate change knowledge into action!
