Held by the Lister Family Engaged Science Initiative in collaboration with John Abbott College, the Lister Science Chats connect members of the community with researchers from the McGill Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The event features four Macdonald Campus graduate students giving an engaging 10-minute talk about their research and how the discoveries, sometimes unintentional, and techniques of previous scientists made their work possible. The event will conclude with an open Q&A period.

Full talk descriptions

This event is part of 24 Hours of Science, a day-long event filled with science and technology activities for everyone (children, teens, young adults, families, seniors, etc.). Over 400 activities take place throughout Quebec! The event starts on Friday at noon and ends 24 hours later, giving room for evening and late-night activities.

Science, what a story!

This year we are looking at how science organizations relate to you, the public! Transmission, testing, discovery, and participation of novices are an integral part of the scientific community, regardless of the field. We therefore invite all science organizations in Quebec to help you discover the heart of their work by offering you exciting activities to satisfy your curiosity!
