    Lecture - Factories, Air Pollution, and the Effect on Animals

    ** COVID-19 Update: You may have heard that McMaster University has cancelled all classes for the rest of the academic term and has urged the cancellation of non-essential events. In keeping with this policy, MCYU will be cancelling its on-campus lectures for April and May. We are in the process of adapting the March, April and May lectures for online. To support families with their at home learning we are developing virtual challenges and activities that children and youth can do at home. We’ve also put together a list of online resources for parents. You can find this info in our Kid Zone here.


    Lecture Description:

    Factories, Air Pollution, and the Effect on Animals – Factories can make a lot of poullution which gets shared with EVERYONE, including animals. Do you ever wonder what the costs are to use and our animal friends? From changing our DNA to changing our climate, discover how air pollution impacts us all!

    Let’s Talk Science will conduct a hands-on activity immediately following our lecture, from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm.

    Ages: 7-14 (whole family welcome)
