Toronto For the last thirty years, professional mathematicians have not performed calculations by hand, except in very special circumstances - machines can do them faster, with more variables and without error. So what exactly do the math pros do? And how do we teach the next generation to live and work in this world?
Toronto Meet the ‘Godfather of the human genome project’, George Church, as he takes us on a tour of one of today’s most active areas of science - genomics. From copying extinct DNA into living species to preventing environmental disasters, hear how the influence of genomics is already far beyond medicine.
Toronto Join RCIScience and York University for a special presentation by Dr. Michael Organ, winner of the 2018 NSERC Polanyi Prize.
Toronto Explore some of the common misconceptions of movement, learn how to perfect performance and discover how to recuperate and maintain movement throughout life.
Toronto Interactive robotic technologies have had a profound impact in fundamental science to measure and modify body motion in order understand how the brain plans and controls body movement and how we learn novel motor skills. If these technologies are so useful for quantifying brain function, why not brain dysfunction?
Toronto Join us for #JustTheFacts to explore the differences between the old and new Ontario Sex Ed curricula and learn how you can share your input before the public consultation closes on December 15. In partnership with the Toronto Science Policy Network.
Toronto A special event celebrating the winner of this year’s Sandford Fleming Medal for outstanding science communication! Learn why academics should be talking about their research to everyone who will listen.
Toronto Modelling a system as complex as Earth’s is extremely difficult, but essential if we want to know what humanity faces in this era of changing climate. Learn how physics and computational methods are used to create models of our past and future climate.
Toronto Join us for a lively exploration into the history and biological properties of cannabis, its neurological mechanisms, addictive properties, and its potential impact on public health following its legalization in Canada this Fall.
Toronto This panel discussion will explore how fundamental research (eventually!) translates into innovative technology and therapies.
Toronto Join us for an evening of fun, food and explorations in science.
