UNBC president George Iwama will be the first guest speaker at Cafe Scientifique, which will take place at Cafe Voltaire in Books & Company Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
Professor at the University of Northern British Columbia and cafe host Todd Whitcomb said the event will be a program of public engagement in science, giving people the opportunity to hear about innovative research and ideas, and also ask questions of experts.
Each session will begin with a 20-minute talk followed by an extensive discussion, including a question and answer period. Dr. Iwama, a fish zoologist, will talk about the effects of stress in fish from the problems caused by global warming to the environmental implications of salmon farming. The event is free of charge at 1685 Third Avenue.
