On this first day of National Science and Technology Week, October 18,
anyone in Canada can try the quiz on the Great Canadian Scientists site
and match wits with the rest of the country. High scorers on that day
will win Great Canadian Scientists t-shirts or a new Great Canadian
Although October 18 will be a special day for the web site quiz, it can
be played by anyone at any time. The web site also includes an "Ask A
Scientist feature," in which volunteer scientists respond to questions on
a wide variety of topics. Some recent queries include: What mountains in
British Columbia are volcanoes? and Can bubble gum be digested?
Find out what happens to bubble gum when swallowed and much more with
Canada's great scientists! Visit the site at http://www.science.ca or
jump to the site from SchoolNet's Math/Science page!
