Look what we’ve almost missed! McGill University in Quebec is holding a series of spring lectures called Mini-Science, meant to give you an understanding of a general subject area. This year the subject is Ecology, Evolution, & Extinction. The series runs on Wednesday evenings and the last one is tomorrow night. Registration is required; I don’t know what a single lecture would cost, but it’s worth asking. So if you’re in Montreal, check it out.
Here’s the blurb:
Learn from the experts about:
- Evolution and global change
- Sustainability and biodiversity
- The consequences of species and habitat loss
Mini-Science offers the public an opportunity to participate in a unique program that brings people together with experts in the field of science and related disciplines at McGill. In the second annual Mini-Science, top scientific minds give lectures that enlighten, entertain and demystify their cutting-edge research on Ecology, Evolution & Extinction.
No science background is required and there is no homework and no exam.
Lectures will be presented in English mais nous vous invitons à poser vos questions en français.
You’ll be able to get Webcasts of the lectures by May 12. ‘Casts of the 2007 lectures are available now.
