In September 2018, the UAlberta Libraries hosted a multitude of events across 5 locations to celebrate Science Literacy Week. The theme was SPACE in celebration of David Saint-Jacques upcoming mission to the International Space Station.

The University of Alberta Libraries 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.


Science Literacy Week wouldn’t be possible without our partners who provided fascinating interactive demonstrations, presentations, and displays.

Science Literacy Week is a nationwide week-long celebration of all things science. At the University of Alberta, it gives students and staff the opportunity to get up close and personal with scientific research and learn what goes on behind lab room doors from those who are passionately curious about their research and work.
