Enjoy an interactive night of learning at Researchers' Night Hamilton

At this free event, the Hamilton community will have the opportunity to connect with researchers and innovators in Engineering, Astrophysics and Archaeology from McMaster and beyond, while learning more about this year’s theme, “Matter and Antimatter,” which explores the birth, life and re-birth of materials.

Through hands-on workshops, activities, and open discussions, members of the public will discover the world of materials is all its forms from the atomic structure of matter, to the biomaterials in medicine, archaeological materials from the Hamilton area, the use of materials for EcoCars, and the recycling process that brings new materials to life.

The event will kick off with a public lecture featuring world famous Zero Waste advocate, Bea Johnson who will talk about how to reduce the amount the materials we use in everyday life, and will include a talk by Danièle Quantin who leads the R&D department at Arcelor Mittal in France and Spain.
