Science Event: "24 heures de science"
On May 6 and 7 at the Mont Saint-Hilaire Biosphere Reserve, 125 years of AAFC research were on display! A science outreach activity called "24 heures de science" gave us the opportunity to highlight the science developed at two of AAFC's research centres in Quebec. The Food Research and Development Centre gave a presentation on chemical diversity in food. The Horticulture Research and Development Centre gave a presentation on beneficial nematodes in the soil, and extracted the aroma of Canada wild ginger. In all, seven partners, including the Canadian Space Agency, took part in the event.
Here are some of the highlights of the event:
