Ask A Laureate May 12, 2017
On Friday, May 12, 2017, the Chemistry Department will host the 8th Annual "Ask a Laureate" event on the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. All are invited to join us for these public lectures.
The Laureates are award winning chemists who are helping to transform our world with their discoveries and innovations. This is an unparalleled opportunity for high school students and the general public to interact with these pioneers of science.
They will explain their leading edge work in a way that you can understand, and each lecture is followed by a Q & A period where they will answer your questions. So join us, and learn about their fascinating personal journeys of discovery.
High school students are encouraged to participate in the Lunch with a Laureate Essay Contest. Winners are granted the Chemistry Scholar Award and will join the Lunch with a Laureate luncheon. Essay submission deadline is April 13, 2017.
