The Waterloo Centre for German Studies will host a free public lecture by bestselling author and historian Timothy Snyder on how we have misunderstood the Holocaust and the essential lessons it should have taught us.
In his talk, The Holocaust as History and Warning, Snyder will explain how the world today echoes sensibilities of the early 20th century more than we may realize.
Forty teams of students from Grades four to eight will compete with LEGO® Mindstorms® robots they created for the FIRST® LEGO® League West Ontario Championships at the University of Waterloo this weekend.
This year’s FIRST® LEGO® League Project explores what is possible if people and animals learn to help each other. The ANIMAL ALLIES® teams will identify problems that arise when animals and humans interact, create innovative solutions to improve interactions between animals and people, and share their solutions with others.
