As part of the Year of Science initiative, the province of British Columbia with support from Science World, presents the Science and Health Expo at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel this Thursday and Friday, November 25 and 26. The expo is aimed towards the general public and aims to show people just how cool science can be. 😉
Looking at the speakers list, you’ll also notice an impressive array of local people whose names tend to end with “Director of …”. On Thursday, take some time to see Dr. Connie Eaves, co-founder of the Terry Fox Laboratory talk about stem cells. On Friday, I’d highly recommend catching Dr. Jennifer Grady’s 11:30am talk about having fun with careers in science and “The Road to Personalized Medicine” from Dr. Steven Jones and Dr. Bruce Carleton at 12:45pm.
Also at the Expo: exhibits and hands-on activities for budding scientists of all ages.
