Highlights from a day of taking science from my lab to the streets of Toronto for North America's first ever Soapbox Science event. Soapbox Science is an annual event from the UK that aims to engage the public with science, and showcase the less-represented faces of scientists to encourage more diversity in STEM fields. I was 1 of 12 Canadian Soapbox Scientists chosen to post up in a lab coat at one of Toronto's busiest intersection, Yonge & Dundas square.

March break chemistry activity for the Toronto Public Library in French

Coverage in a local Francophone newspaper about a French outreach activity for young kids that I was in charge of planning for the Toronto Public Library. In collaboration with a passionate team of 6 French-speaking scientists, we designed and executed a multi-step experimental puzzle to teach kids ages 5-12 about chemistry -- entirely in French.
