Conclusion of Science Literacy Week
The NTHSA was pleased to participate for the first time in Science Literacy Week, which falls under the auspices of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. If you had a chance to check out www.scienceliteracy.ca for all the national events that took place from Sept. 21-27, you would have found our submission among 85 public events, 15 private ones and 215 online events on a very wide range of topics. We also provided advance notice of our submission to the Alberta Science Network and the Alberta Teachers Association Science Council shortly after schools reopened. The Edmonton Heritage Council and Tesla Science Foundation were notified as well of our participation. Thanks are extended to those who took part, and in particular to Dr. K. Tanino, M. P. M. Nair and Helen Hall ( member of Nikola Tesla Team Canada) for their valuable contributions.
