The Faculty of Science is celebrating McGill’s 200th anniversary with a student art exhibition on the theme of “Science!”. McGill students at all levels and all faculties are invited to submit works in any medium, expressing what science means to them.

Faculty of Science bicentennial committee member, Torsten Bernhard, says the aim of the exhibition is to celebrate science in all its forms.

It is with great sadness that I share with members of the Faculty and entire University community news of Professor Laurie Hendren’s passing, on May 27, 2019.

As a member of the School of Computer Science, Laurie was an exceptional teacher, researcher, colleague, and above all, friend.
