Share this event

The Gairdner Foundations second annual Science Literacy Workshop is back on September 21! In partnership with the Canadian Association of Science Centres ScienceUpFirst initiative and RCIScience, and sponsored by the Government of Canada and CIHR and TELUS Health, this free, in-person workshop will explore what science literacy is and its role in building science culture. Join us during Science Literacy Week as we seek to uncover the power of community, and how researchers and science communicators can work with and within communities to foster science culture from the ground up. This interactive workshop is a unique opportunity to network and collaborate. Dinner is included.
