The future of Science: Who will be the next Charles Darwin?

February 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| $15

Every once in a while, scientific knowledge surges forward, thanks to a brilliant individual like Galileo, Newton, or Darwin. Dan Riskin, evolutionary biologist, author, and co-host of Discovery’s Daily Planet, explores what sets these thinkers apart from their peers, and asks: In a modern world of specialists, can one person ever have such a wide ranging impact again?

Following Dan’s address, he will be joined on stage by three leading science communicators in an interactive discussion on the theme: Marketing Science. Panellists include:

Kate Allen, Science and Technology Reporter, Toronto Star
Nila Sivatheesan, Environmental Visual Communication (www.eviscomm.ca) Graduate
Hannah Hoag, Managing Editor and Science Journalist, Arctic Deeply
