This Science Café is one of the events organized by the University of Waterloo Library during Science Literacy Week. Aimed to promote public engagement with science in an informal, discussion-rich setting, this event will feature three postdocs from the Faculty of Science.

In addition to the individual’s research interest, the panel also highlights how and why a scientist’s research question is formulated. You will be able to network and gain insights into how to kickstart your next projects.

Free coffee and cookies on us!
