This year, UBC Library is celebrating with a Science Expo, to be held in the main entrance area of Woodward Library on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 from 10 a.m. to noon. Everyone, including students, faculty and the wider UBC community, is encouraged to drop by the event to visit the booths and get a glimpse of the amazing science that’s happening right on campus.
There will be several UBC Library partners at the event, including:
- Beaty Biodiversity Museum
- Canadian Blood Services
- Engineering Physics
- Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) at UBC
- Open Science Network DIYBio
- UBC Biomedical Engineering Student Team (BEST)
At UBC Library’s booth, expect to get hands-on with Arduino coding and electronics kits, interactive demos with AnatomyTV and Birds of North America, and more. We’ll also be talking about our Seed Lending Library, which allows anyone to pick up seeds free of charge, while providing opportunities to learn about gardening, seed saving, and agricultural research at UBC.
