Environmental Science Academy: Roadway Pollution and Zooplankton

The Library offers practical, lifestyle and educational talks.

Hear from our community's young scientific researchers!

The Environmental Science Academy (ESA) is a unique, collaborative initiative with the West Vancouver School District, scientists at the Pacific Science Enterprise Centre and interested community partners. This dynamic program has a research mentorship component, where small groups of Grade 11 and 12 students design an experiment relating to a contemporary environmental topic. Students will be presenting their research at a Library speaking series on April 8, 10, 12 and 16.

In this presentation, students will present "Roadway Pollution and Zooplankton." Zooplankton are a keystone species in our coastal environment, providing a source of food to many aquatic animals. This research dives into the negative effects of roadway pollution on these tiny animals, and consequently the rest of the marine ecosystem.

Tuesday, April 16, 2 p.m. – 3 p.m., The Lab
