September 20 - 26 is Science Literacy Week, in partnership with hundreds of libraries and other organizations across Canada. Here at Brampton Library, we are excited to share this year’s theme, C is for Climate, with programs for all ages and wonderful resources recommended by our staff.
Avid gardeners, and those interested in becoming gardeners, are sure to be intrigued by Gardening in a Changing Climate presented by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) for participants aged 19+. This webinar examines how climate change is rapidly impacting natural spaces on a global and local scale, including our own gardens. Learn how to build resiliency, and your own understanding of our changing landscape, on September 23 from 2:00 -- 3:00 pm.
We are thrilled to welcome Indus Space to present their virtual program Marsbound: Mission to the Red Planet, a 3-part game and workshop. A team of space educators will lead tweens and teens on a simulated mission to Mars! They will be challenged to design a technical solution to a science question.
