Lister Science Chats

The Lister Science Chats connects students currently at home through live science talks with researchers from the McGill Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. To participate, please visit:

Each chat features a Macdonald Campus graduate student giving an engaging 30-minute English presentation on their research, followed by a 15-minute question period. Although the targeted levels for these science chats are Secondary 4 & Secondary 5, anyone with a passion for science is welcome to join!
