Science Literacy Week

Science Literacy Week 2019: September 16-22

Every year, Science Literacy Week happens in Canada - according to its founder, the goal of #SciLit week is, "to showcase the excellence and diversity of Canadian science and to show how exciting science is." It's a celebration of science in Canada with events happening at science centres, research institutes, universities, and public libraries across the country. You can learn more about Science Literacy Week and see other events here.

This year, the SNOLAB community shared their favourite physics books for all ages and we've compiled them into a reading list. There's something here for everyone, regardless of your age or experience with physics. Happy reading!
