From September 17 to 23, 2018, University of Alberta Libraries will host a number of presentations, demos, and displays showcasing the diverse scientific research conducted by staff and students all across the University of Alberta. 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.

So put on your lab coat, find your best beaker, and come check it out. Everyone is welcome!

Please Check Back in August for the 2018 Schedule.

Volunteer at Science Literacy Week!

Join the Libraries, WISEST, and the Faculty of Science by volunteering for Science Literacy Week (Sept 18th - 22nd), an event that will be taking place nationwide and will be hosted here at the University of Alberta in Cameron Library.

There are many cool events this year including penguins, molecular gastronomy labs, board games, explosive chemistry, free pancakes and ice cream, microbrewery tours and many more! See our website for a fuller list of events. As a volunteer you will get front row seats in exchange for help with the set-up/tear-down of the presentations and demos, plus some cool swag to boast your love of science to the whole community!

We still need more volunteers in order to help make this event a success! Sign up via this form. Contact if you have any questions.
