KitchenerMaker Club: Needle FeltingTHEMUSEUM, 10 King St. West, Kitchener, Ontario, N2G1A3May 11, 2016THEMUSEUMUsing saws, glue guns, hammers and soldering irons, families explore creativity with tools often reserved for adults. At Maker Club children and youth ages 6-15 learn to embrace the creative process through hands-on, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) based activities such as woodworking, toy hacking, 3D printing, and silk screening. Participants build confidence in using complex tools in a safe environment. All Maker Club projects start and finish in a single session and are designed to embrace problem solving. Due to demand we are now only collecting names and emails of those interested, and we will send a notice 2-3 weeks before each meeting to sign up for specific topics on a first-come first served basis. Memberships for Maker Club are available, which guarantees a spot in Maker Club each month. This month's program consists of using needle felting to blend materials together and to creatively apply that skill to create a designed piece. Needle felting is a unique form of production that transforms a fibrous material such as wool through a seemingly unintuitive process into a desired shape. Needle felting touches upon applique and sculptural processes, as well as providing a quickly for how the density of an object affects its other physical properties, such as tensile strength.

LondonMaking Zombies: How a parasitic wasp hijacks the brain of its host.(7-8pm) at North Campus building 101, Western University, London, ON7-8pm, May 11Western UniversityPublic lecture: Some parasites, such as the parasitic wasp Cotesia congregata, manipulate the behaviour of their hosts. The wasp lays its eggs inside the body of the tobacco hornworm caterpillar. The wasp larvae develop inside the caterpillar, drinking its blood. The caterpillar behaves normally until the wasp needs to exit the host. The wasp larvae then drill their way through the body wall of the caterpillar, spin a cocoon, and emerge from the cocoon as adult wasps a few days later. The wasp larvae secrete a substance that numbs the area of the skin through which the wasp exits, preventing the caterpillar from reacting to the skin irritation. The caterpillar also stops feeding and moving spontaneously just before the wasps emerge. The caterpillar turns into a 'bodyguard' for the wasps. The wasps exploit communication pathways between the caterpillar's immune system and nervous system. The wasps activate an immune response in the caterpillar as they drill out of the host. They increase its amplitude and duration, leading to a shut down in caterpillar feeding. Without this shutdown, the caterpillars eat the cocoons. The wasp larvae have direct effects on the caterpillar's brain, resulting in a permanent loss of feeding and spontaneous movement.

OttawaAging and Health in Canada Data Integration to Address Complex Health Challenges for an Aging PopulationR.H. Coats Building, 100 Tunney's Pasture Driveway, Simon Goldberg Conference Centre, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0T6May 9, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.Statistics CanadaJoin us in Ottawa to discover the latest data-integration techniques applied to inform decisions on health and aging. In September 2015, Canadian seniors outnumbered children for the first time in history. Currently, seniors represent approximately 16% of the total population, a number expected to increase to nearly 23% by 2031. While Canadians are living longer and healthier lives, declining health and an increased need for health-care services continue to be the greatest challenges for older seniors. At present, in Canada, approximately 28% of seniors are 80 years of age or older. This group is growing, and will have nearly doubled in number by 2031. Meeting the health-care needs of Canadian seniors now, and in the future, is a complex and multi-dimensional challenge. More and more seniors are living in their community for longer, requiring more services in place. Others may require more intensive services that can be provided only in long-term settings. Understanding the current and future health needs of seniors requires information from a wide range of data sources and tools, which must be integrated to provide a more comprehensive view--the answers will not all be found in a single dataset! This presentation will highlight the data-integration techniques, including record linkage and microsimulation that Statistics Canada uses to bring national and provincial data sources together for the purpose of informing responses to challenging and complex policy issues related to health and aging.

TorontoGreen Chemistry: The Missing Elements (Public Lecture)University of Toronto - Bahen Centre Room BA1130, 40 St. George Street, Toronto ON, M5S 2E46-7 pm on May 11, 2016 (followed by refreshments)Green Chemistry InitiativeThis is a public lecture by Dr. John Warner, the co-founder and one of the biggest names in green chemistry, as he talks about how we can use green chemistry concepts to create a more sustainable future. Registration is FREE at: https://missingelements.eventbrite.ca The public lecture will be from 6-7 pm with refreshments to follow! Registration includes the refreshments after the lecture, where you will have the chance to meet John Warner in person and ask him any burning questions you may have. Abstract: Imagine a world where all segments of society demanded environmentally benign products! Imagine if all consumers, all retailers and all manufacturers insisted on buying and selling only non-toxic materials! The unfortunate reality is that, even if this situation were to occur, our knowledge of materials science and chemistry would allow us to provide only a small fraction of the products and materials that our economy is based upon. The way we learn and teach chemistry and materials science is for the most part void of any information regarding mechanisms of toxicity and environmental harm. Green Chemistry is a philosophy that seeks to reduce or eliminate the use of hazardous materials at the design stage of a materials process. It has been demonstrated that materials and products CAN be designed with negligible impact on human health and the environment while still being economically competitive and successful in the marketplace. This presentation will describe the history and background of Green Chemistry and discuss the opportunities for the next generation of materials designers to create a safer and more sustainable future. Note: This public lecture is also the keynote lecture for the Green Chemistry Initiative's Innovations in Chemistry Towards Sustainable Urban Living symposium.
