About Science Literacy Week

Led by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Science Literacy Week showcases the many ways kids and families can explore and enjoy the diversity of Canadian science. From September 19 to 25, 2022, libraries, museums, science centres, schools and not-for-profits are coming together to celebrate this year’s theme, Mathematics.
