Join the University of Toronto and the Treehouse Group as we present Science at the Movies: a series that combines expert knowledge with classic sci-fi films.
For our third and final installment we'll be harking back to The Golden Age of Guttenberg with Short Circuit - a film that follows the adventures of experimental robot "Number 5", who comes alive after he's struck by lightening and subsequently escapes the confines of a military lab.
Johnny Five is alive!
Our guest speakers will be University of Toronto Professors Diana Raffman (Philosophy) and Sheila McIlraith (Computer Science). As with the other films in the series, Canadian author/science journalist Dan Falk will be on hand to moderate the discussion.

University of Toronto & Treehouse Group
The University of Toronto's goal with Science Engagement is to facilitate its scientists' engagement with the community, in order to share the excitement of their new discoveries and the challenges of the scientific process, as well as to inspire kids and to encourage innovation.
Founded in 2007, the Treehouse Group is a Toronto-based, multi-disciplinary group of young professionals who curate interactive panels, conferences, and events. Our workshops are hands-on, and emphasize collaboration and creativity. We have an eclectic speakers list including artists, constitutional lawyers, biologists, and indie gamers.
We believe that bringing different perspectives to industry events allows for meaningful connections, and environments in which great ideas flourish.
