Find out more about Mini-Science, a unique 7-week public lecture series from McGill University’s Faculty of Science, designed to offer the public an insider's view of science.

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.

Each evening will focus on a single topic, and will consist of a lecture followed by a question and answer session. No science background is required. There is no homework and no exam.

Mini-Science will take place over seven consecutive Wednesday evenings, from February 26 to April 9.

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

Space is limited. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Find out more and register today!
