NRC's Student Science & Tech Web site goes live!
This site provides students and teachers alike with an exciting educational resource. Students now have access to interactive tools and engaging information for use in their day-to-day science learning.
The aim of the site is to foster understanding among young Canadians of the benefits of science and technology, both for their everyday lives and their future careers.
This new user-friendly resource links to information on many of the significant topics in the classroom today: astronomy, innovations in technology, advancements in chemistry, and much more!
In response to increasing demand for NRC's ever-popular Canadian Skies poster, we have designed an interactive way for students to Explore the Night Sky over Canada.
Among other activities, they can download a planisphere to construct for viewing the constellations that change throughout the year.
The astronomy page also gives students a chance to delve deeper into the science of astronomy and NRC's key role in discovering the secrets of the Universe.
The enhanced Periodic Table of the Elements gives up-to-date information about each element, highlights real-world applications, and links many elements to leading-edge research at NRC.
For example, using this tool, students will discover how iodine plays a central role in forensic fingerprinting, and how NRC worked to develop a cutting-edge technique for collecting fingerprints from homicide victims, something they may have seen re-enacted recently on the popular television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Science & Tech Innovations tells the stories of Canadian innovators, their research and the numerous areas where NRC is forging new directions, from biomedical research to virtualized environments, engineering and breakthroughs in the pure and fundamental sciences.
