This networking event is for Toronto AAAS members and science enthusiasts wanting to make personal and professional connections in their local community both inside and outside their own disciplines. Over the course of this year AAAS will be launching a series of these local events in cities around the world.
Our special guest speakers for this Toronto event are AAAS Fellow M. Brock Fenton, an expert on bats and professor (Emeritus) of biology, The University of Western Ontario, and AAAS Fellow Andrew Goldenberg, a professor (Emeritus) of mechanical engineering, University of Toronto. Fenton's bat research explores the interfaces between animal behaviour, ecology and evolution. Goldenberg develops robotics for defense and security, space exploration, medical surgery and laboratory automation. They will open the evening event, giving short presentations on the latest research in their fields.
Following the lectures, we will be holding a cocktail reception, giving you the opportunity to network with the speakers and other attendees.
Join us for a night of stimulating science and great conversation.
