    Lecture - Sun, Snow & Seals - Studying seals to save humans

    ** 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:

    Sun, Snow & Seals: Studying seals to save humans – Seals can hold their breath for a long time while they swim and chase their food! How can understanding how they do this help us design better medicines for people who are sick? Join us to learn about seal research in Antartica!

    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)

    Cost: FREE
