What is Mini-Science?

Mini-Science logo

Mini-Science is an educational outreach program designed to offer the public an insider's view of science. McGill University’s Faculty of Science is once again sponsoring this unique 7-week public lecture series. This year's theme is The Science of Music. The series starts with an introduction on how our brains learn to play music and concludes with a look at microbes and music. In between we will learn about music in nature and why we love certain kinds of music. No science background is required. There is no homework and no exam.

Each evening will focus on a single topic, and will consist of a lecture followed by a question and answer session.

Mini-Science will be presented in English, but questions are welcome in English or French.
