Science Literacy Week 2021
In honour of Science Literacy Week 2021, we have a display in Douglas Library and a new libguide showcasing some of the resources the library has to offer.
Science Literacy Week showcases the many ways kids and families can explore and enjoy the diversity of Canadian science. Libraries, museums, science centres, schools and not-for-profits come together to highlight the books, movies, podcasts and events that share exciting stories of the science, discoveries and ingenuity shaping our lives. It’s about each and everyone’s unique relationship with science and how they live it.
This year’s theme is climate. Please join Environment and Climate Change Canada and organizations from across Canada who offer content that will inspire you. Canada is a country that is filled with different climates: we have long, harsh winters in our North, mild and rainy stretches along our Coasts, dry flatland and varied temperatures in our Prairies, and heatwaves and snowstorms along our Southern border! These different climates define Canada’s regions and influence the people, plants and animals that live within them. We’re encouraging Canadians to explore how these climates have evolved over time, how those changes have impacted our lives, and how our climates might change in the future.
