Markham YorkU Scholars Hub: Sensing the World Around Us

March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Markham Village Library
6031 Hwy 7
Markham, ON L3P 3A7

The world around us is full of information, whether it be the view of a mountain vista, the sound of a nearby bird flapping its wings, or the bouquet of a well-aged cabernet. Our bodies are well-equipped with extraordinary systems designed to detect and encode these sorts of information. This talk will explore how those systems work, such as how your eye can be sensitive to a single photon of light, or the curious feature that your ear not only responds to sound, but emits it as well!

Join Markham Public Library and York University as we bring to Markham a taste of the university experience. Each month YorkU faculty will bring their amazing research and provide an opportunity for our community to learn something new.

This is a FREE event, but an RSVP is required.
