Ontario-based research has changed Canada and the world. Thousands of Ontario researchers are working every day to change lives, yet oftentimes their breakthroughs remain unknown.
From March 30 to April 2, Ontario Research Week will celebrate Ontario university research while encouraging high school students, the general public, the university community, industry and government to learn about the accomplishments made by Ontario researchers.
At Let’s Talk Science, we’re getting involved in Ontario Research Week by showcasing all the great research our volunteers are conducting. Not only are Outreach volunteers discussing their research during classroom visits, but our CurioCity program will also post a Canadian research profile online every day of Research Week! Watch for them here.
Let’s Talk Science is also excited to be involved with the Ontario and Canada Research Chairs Symposium, taking place April 1-2 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This exciting event includes three free panel sessions:
